I have no idea if these coated aluminum needles are still made. They're from England and I have size 1 dpns from this manufacturer. They're decent metal needles with a blunter tip than the Inox metal needles. My only complaint with these needles is that over time the coating does wear off (I assume it is to keep them rustproof?) and the yarn starts catching or snagging where the coating has worn off. It could be my imagination but they appear less cold than the Inox metal dpns. They do bend occasionally but you can just bend them back.
