I love these crochet hooks. They are perfect in their simplicity. It is surprisingly hard to find a good crochet hook without some kind of "comfort" handle. Comfortable handles have their place but I was looking for a crochet hook that could do double duty as a companion to my knitting needles and for crocheting. This is perfect. Lightweight, grabby enough, beautiful, long and slender so I can use all the crochet techniques I want to without cursing the bulky handle.
