I didn't even know anyone made 8 inch ones. The smallest I've ever seen is 16.

Could you use DPNs?

Sorry, I purchased mine at a local yarn shop and they don't have an online ordering system yet. Have you tried any LYS yet? They might be able to special order one if you have the need.

Takumi made some kind of all plastic one. Don't think I'd ever use one smaller than a 16", though.

Addi Turbo makes 12 inch circs....and they are very difficult to work with. I found it hard to purl and decrease with them.

I have a pair, don't know what I did with them actually. They were really uncomfortable for me to use.
