Description

Hand Sewing Needle #18 by W. Smith & Son is a high quality sailmaker’s hand-sewing needle. Forged in England from cast steel, this hand-sewing needle has a triangular point and sharp edges to cut through the fabric. The sharpness makes it easy to pass through heavier fabric assemblies. A long eye makes threading easier. Sailmakers use triangular shaped needles to open larger holes in the fabric to cut down on chafe problems when a long length of twine is repeatedly pulled through.

Needle size increases as the number decreases. The #16 needle is good for most work, but as a general rule use larger needles for sewing through many layers of fabric and smaller needles for seam work. Simply use the needle that yields the smallest hole without undue trouble.

Needle length: 2-7/16 inches

Fits through a small hole in a wood frame of my kayak. I need to replace the skin over the frame. I wish it were an inch longer.

This is a good needle. The triangular shaped point made it easy to use when stitching up my tonno cover.

Nice needle, but a bit too soft

Nice sized needle for lighter duty hand stitching. However, after using one to stitch denim the tip folded over on itself, making a tiny hook. I'll try to fix it, but the steel seems soft.

The needle was fine but it turned out to be the wrong size for my project. Also the styrofoam packaging was not great. I poked my finger with the needle putting it away.
