Just thought I'd pass on this information about the sizing differences in these steel hooks in case anyone was interested in purchasing. Clover uses a Japanese sizing system, so a Size 4 steel hook (Bates) for example, would be size 0 for them! I just ordered one. Has anyone tried them yet? The ergonomic design is supposed to be easier on the hands.

Size 14 ~ .50mm / no US comparison / size 80-100 thread

Size 12 ~ .60mm / no US comparison / 70-80 thread

Size 10 ~ .75mm / = Boye size 14 / size 50-80 thread

Size 8 ~ 90mm / = Bates size 14 / size 40-60 thread

Size 6 ~ 1.00mm / = Boye/Bates size 12 / size 20-30 thread

Size 4 ~ 1.25mm / = Bates size 9 / size 18-30 thread

Size 2 ~ 1.50mm / = Boye size 8 / Bates size 7 / size 10-20 thread

Size 0 ~ 1.75mm / = Bates size 4 / size 8-18 thread
