I'll be returning these. The wood looks gouged, as some others have mentioned in other reviews, and they do not feel smooth at all. The case would be useful but it's very shiny, cheap feeling, and more gaudy than I expected. I have other rosewood needles by other brands and they've always been worth the price, but these don't measure up IMO.

I love the feel of these needles but within 2 months one of the 4mm tips began to splinter, Knit Picks did send a replacement needle but it too splintered within another month or so. Some of the other sizes developed some rough spots on the tips which I was able to get rid of by lightly sanding. It was only on the smaller size needles that I had this problem.

I enjoy knitting with these unfortunately they don't hold up well to use. I knit one sweater on my 4mm and the tips are worn right out. They are pretty though....

Love these needles! So smooth to knit with and so beautiful to look at. I hope they'll be available for individual purchase soon so I can stock up on my most-used sizes :)

Knitpicks customer service is the best! About half the needles in this set were defective in my opinion. The tips that had clear wood were fine. The ones that had a lot of grain seemed to have gouges in the wood where the grain was. I received replacements for the defective ones but still had issues. I ended of returning them and buying the rainbow set instead.

I love this kit. The rosewood is some of the smoothest needles I've ever used, the yarn glides off of it effortlessly. It is easy to swap cables, and comes with ends of locking the cables off if you need to park a project for a bit.

I just purchased this set (for my husband to give me for Christmas) and am already enjoying it. One of the nicest things is enjoying, and appreciating, the beauty of the wood. Each needle has a slightly different patina all of which are lovely. I used to just enjoy the knitting but now I also enjoy & admire the needle tips.

I was cautiously optimistic when I ordered these as a gift for my sister. I have tried the Caspian with the green cables. They drove me nuts and it was not a pleasant experience. I double checked each Rosewood needle tip and they were smooth and lovely. I tested the size 7 tips with a cable. Lovely to knit with and a wonderful join. The black cables are the best! Vast improvement over the green ones. The case is nice and has room for her set of zyphers. Sis will love them. I'm putting these on my wishlist now

I just received this set and am thrilled with the quality of everything from the needles to the case. I have the needles already working on a scarf project and I am pleased with the feel of the rosewood. They are elegant needles to own and use and they were definitely a bargain.

Ooooh, yes!! I got mine last year and Mmmmm, they're nice! Nothing like having something that fine to work with. I love mine! Absolutely love 'em!! It's easy to do lace, the points are nicely shaped and clean, even bought more cables to do more projects at once. Sadly that's my biggest hangup, too many projects going at once but seriously, with needles like this who could resist trying them all out on different things?
