Rated 5 out of 5 by RamonaQ Really love this hook.
I purchased this hook in 11, specifically to use with Bernat Baby Blanket yarn (thick, fat, squishy yarn).
I was a bit concerned, as I am super sensitive to things rubbing my palm - can't use aluminum hooks for anything, because the pointed end chaffs my palms badly - so I was worried the fancy end of this would bother, or annoy, me. It doesn't. Not even a little.
The pointy part is nice and... well, pointy, but in a good way - it doesn't harm anything, and it scoots through the yarn easily.
The wood is nice & smooth, no splinters or any rough parts.
It's not heavy, it's easy to use, and I really am very glad I purchased it.
For reference, my Holy Grail hooks are Clover Bamboo hooks. I like this one equally as well, even though it is way larger than what I normally use (5mm).
The only downside would be that there was a small smear of paint from the gold lettering, but I like the hook so much, I don't even care.
