From the manufacturer
We have even developed an entire new line of manufacturing machinery to make these new bamboo knitting needles worthy of the Takumi name. As a result, when lesser knitting needles are cold, bent, chipped, scratched, warped, split, broken and eventually discarded, your Takumi knitting needles will have become treasured heirlooms that continue to enhance your creative aspirations.

A couple complaints: The yarn doesn't pass smoothly over the metal in the smallest needle sizes. They do unscrew themselves sometimes, and the kit doesn't include any tools to tighten them. However, as I got used to using them, this happens much less. Also, this set does not include many accessories that most other kits include standard, such as cord stoppers & connectors. Those are sold separately here on Amazon and are VERY overpriced, so expect to pay $12 for EACH pair of stoppers, and pair of connectors that you get. Additional cables are $8–$9 each. This is also the brand sold at Michael's craft store, but don't expect the accessories to be any cheaper there.
The smallest size is 3.25mm, so the kit doesn't include very thin needles that would be suitable for much lace and socks. I eventually got a set of ChiaoGoo steel interchangeables, which range from 1.5 – 2.5 mm and are thus a great compliment to this set.
They're good quality needles and you can't really go wrong with them. That said, I can't particularly recommend them over other sets, as I haven't tried any other wooden interchangeable sets. There is some room for improvement here, so you might be better off trying a different set.
J'ai communiqué avec Clover à savoir quels soins apporter à ces aiguilles afin d'éviter la déshydratation du bambou. J'attend une réponse ... à venir.

My only down side to these are that they are slightly shorter length than I am used to, however with that said it does mean that this set will make smaller circular items such as hats!
Ein Super Pluspunkt :die Seile, die mitgeliefert werden. Ich bin einfach nur begeistert! Da verdreht sich gar nix und sie sind sehr flexibel. Bei diesen Seilen braucht man kein warmes Wasser oder sowas. Ich habe eben nur Seile von KnitPro und Addi Premium gekannt, aber die sind total anders.
Ich habe mir gewünscht, dass die Nadeln bei den grösseren Stärken ein bisschen mehr spitziger ist. Die Oberfläche der Nadeln sind etwas rauh, und ich musste die Maschen immer ziehen/schieben. Was mich beim Stricken leider "verlangsamt", kam einfach nicht so vorwärts. Wenn ich schon etwas "Teureres" anschaffe, dann sollte es schon (fast) perfekt sein. ;-)
Aber wie gesagt, Verarbeitung und Optik sind wirklich top!
