Murrells (Murrells Inlet, SC USA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) I bought this one Caron Tulip Etimo Hook, Size H/8 to compare it to the Clover Takumi Getaway Soft Touch Crochet Hooks Gift Set that I had purchased to see if there was a big difference. I got a really good deal on Amazon on the Clover set but I wanted to be sure I had the most comfortable product.Clover Takumi: handle length 3-3/4″, needle shaft length 1-1/2″Caron Tulip Etimo: handle length 3-15/16″, needle shaft length 1-9/16″, overall longer than CloverClover Takumi handle is ABS resin with comfort grip thumb rest which is a little wider than TulipCaron Tulip Etimo handle is a softer elastomeric material, but with a slightly narrower width at thumb rest area than the Clover.Perceptually is appears as if the Caron Tulip hook is deeper because of the shape, but looking closely at the angle and depth of just the hook itself, it looks to me like the Caron and Clover are almost identical.I would prefer the softer elastomer of the Tulip and believe it would be easier on the hands as many probably would, but for my hand the handle is just a little bit long where it rests on my palm and I prefer the slightly wider width of the Clover at the thumb placement, whether holding the crochet hook like a pencil or like a fork. It basically comes down to what is more comfortable in each persons own hand. I would buy one of each and try them both before I bought a set. For me I am happy with the Clover especially since I got the Clover set for $27 on Amazon in August 2012. Both the Clover and the Tulip are approx. $58 today and both have 8 hooks.I cannot attest to how long each would last because I only just bought them both recently, others may have more experience with durability than I do. Hope this is of some help, even if only to encourage you to try both.

I have seen many crochet hooks and I usually use the aluminum hooks. I’ve had a lot of pain in my hands and wrists, so I decided to try a different hook and these Tulip hooks are a wonder. They are easy on the hands and fingers and work like a charm. The yarn just flows with the hook. Now I am planning to replace all my hooks with the Tulip hook. If you haven’t tried one of these, you are missing out on a wonderful hook.

This review is from: Bottle Cap Tulip Etimo Crochet Hook, Size 7/4.5mm (Misc.) These are very comfortable hooks to hold in your hands, especially with mild to moderate arthritic hands. They are soft and easy to handle; I have tried the larger hooks and the bamboo, I much prefer these and highly recommend them.
