yes beautiful, I do love them, but don't know if I could spend that much on hooks...the ones I have will last just as long if taken care of...if I won the lottery, then I think that is one thing I would treat myself too...LOL

Glass, I don't know about those...pretty, but would be worried about them breaking...

I have 3 of those hooks (F,G,H). They're absolutely gorgeous and a pleasure to work with. Bill is very prompt with the shipping too. Someday I'll get the remaining sizes and the case. I think it's worthwhile spending on a beautifully made object like that, which you will always treasure :D

They are handmade with exotic wood and they are $14 each. I think that is pretty reasonable. :shrug:

Cando - do you know how long it takes for them to respond to an email? I'm impatient..yes I am. I emailed last night and haven't heard back yet. LOL


Edit to add:

Ok so I noticed on his site that the ones I requested have SOLD by them but I haven't heard back yet....

You should hear from him pretty quickly. I wrote to him very late one night and got a reply next morning saying he's set aside the ones I liked. And I too think $14 is a good price :D

I still haven't' heard from him, but noticed the box I requested was marked sold. Hopefully I'll hear soon. I didn't give a phone number but my email is working.

Check out Ozarktwist hooks on ebay! They are wonderful as well. I am becoming a little bit of a wood hook collector, and these are my favorite!

Also, G3 Studios hooks on ebay. They are retro and very comfortable.

Of course, I have some of the TOTC hooks, and they are wonderful too!!

The Ozarktwists are really nice,. I couldn't find the G3 Studios. My hooks have been mailed by Bill at TOTC. I can't wait! :cheering:

Thanks for the website Robinbyrd. Tthey're beautiful and are certainly something I would never buy myself. I did take a page from your book though and asked my husband for them for my birthday. I can hardly wait, although my birthday is a month away.

I got mine on Wednesday! OH MY GOODNESS!!! These are the most awesome hooks!! Not only are they truly beautiful...the case is wonderful (I chose a walnut wood one w/green velvet)...but they are soooo smooth with the yarn. They just glide through and he puts a small point at the tip of the hook so you can easily get the hook into the stitches. I love love love them!!! I took the G hook to the courthouse on Thursday (jury duty) and no problems getting through security. My hubby was very impressed and my son loved the box soo much. Honestly...worth every penny!! I did get the set of 5 instead of 6 though so it was slightly less.

:) I hope your hubby gets them for you kknittinfool!
