So I promised to tell you what I thought about the Harmony DPNS. I loves them. They are my favorite DPN, trumping the more expensive (bit still nice) Crystal Palace bamboo.
I honestly have nothing bad to say, but since lots of hearts and kisses are not helpful, here they are in comparison to some other needles.

There is a Crystal Palace bamboo, a Harmony and an Inox metal, all US1. The tip of the harmony really isn't so much sharper, but it has a longer taper, so the stitches just cruise along. In fact I've casually knit 3/4 a sock in a few days- a record for me.
The colors are great- witht he thin needles the laminate wood stripes along the needle, so as they rotate around they seem to turn color. Fun!
No breaking or bending so far.
I have to say I don't understand why the DPN sets come in two different metric sizes for each US size. Seems like confusion to me. So I'll just order the standard US sizes.
