Genuine hand made reduced edge quality hand sewing sailmakers needles.
W. Smith & Son have been manufacturing needles in England since 1835. Manufactured from high carbon cast steel, the highly polished reduced edge design and triangular point easily pierce heavy fabric and the elongated eye makes threading easier.
