SUSAN BATES-Silvalume crochet Hooks. These hooks have the broadest size range within the Susan Bates family of hooks. Made of lightweight aluminum; each Silvalume hook undergoes a special anodizing process that etches away all surface impurities. In addition; each hook is heat treated for strength and durability and polished for a velvety smooth finish. Each size is color coded so you can find the size you need at a glance and the US and metric sizes are clearly marked on the knob. This hook has a 22in flexible cable; which aids in working a large number of stitches. Imported.

It is also too short compared to a standard hook and the end of the metal piece pokes my hand.
The cord bent and broke off where it is inserted into the hook. What a turn off
I was able to complete an afghan I had started when I became in need of a longer hook this filled the need to a T.
And unlike the Boye long tunsinian hooks which are endorsed by someone called Crochet Dude - the Susan Bates didn't fall apart where the end of the metal shank meets the cord extension, no fraying, no pulling.
I would recommend this extended tunsinian hook everytime for longer projects.
I have not used this item yet. Upon opening package I realized I had not paid attention to the length, I have been looking for a length to use for a full size afghan, not sections.
Looks to be a decent quality, I'm sure time will tell.
