The hooks are very smooth and yarn glides easily, but the throat/groove is not deep enough to catch the complete strand of yarn. I have split more yarn with these hooks than any of the other hooks I own (Boye [new and vintage], Susan Bates [new and vintage], Clover [3 versions], Lion Brand, and unmarked Japanese hooks from the 50s).
I like the material used for the handles, but don't like the shape. There is a little thumb bump/thumb rest that is uncomfortable for me. I use the knife hold, so pencil holders might not have this problem, but the tip of my thumb gets sore.
For such expensive hooks, I was surprised to find that stickers are used for the sizes. "Japan" is molded into the rubber handle, but the hook sizes are stickers? On mine, the corners of the stickers were already starting to come up. Yarn fuzz and extended use are going to eventually cause the sticker to pull away completely.
This last criticism might just be my perception, but the sizing seems a little off to me. I use a 4mm hook more than any other and the shaft of the 4mm Tulip looks more like my vintage Susan Bates G hooks, which are 4.25mm. I crocheted a test ball (cat toy) with the Tulip and the ball seemed larger than the one I made using a different 4mm hook. For me, paying this much for hooks means I'd like to have absolutely accurate measurements. Don't put 4mm on there if it isn't exactly 4mm.
Again, I don't care for these hooks. I was hoping I would love them, but I just don't. I would highly recommend the Clover Amour hooks, however, if you are looking for something similar. They aren't lovely shades of pink, and they don't come in a fancy set with scissors and a case, but I do believe they are superior hooks. The yarn glides just as smoothly as the Tulips, yet the throat is deeper and catches the whole strand of yarn. The handle is made of the same material, yet it is flat -- no bump for my thumb to rub against and get sore. Hook sizes are molded into the handle, so you don't have to worry about them peeling off or collecting fuzz. The sizing seems to be accurate. The Clover Amour hooks cost significantly less as well. You could put together your own gift set with nice scissors, yarn needles, and a case! :o)
I will keep these hooks as backups -- they aren't horribly nightmarish to use -- which is why I'm giving them a 3 (It's Okay) instead of a 2 (I Don't Like It).

I love my clover amour but with these I crochet faster and they just glide through the yarn. They also split the yarn much less. Well worth the money
