Looking for a specific needle

    A while back I bought some needles that I like. They are described in the Havel's website as Post Mortem Needles Loopuyts Double Curve Cutting Edge - Style 150. I liked the size 3 which Havels does not carry & I can't find where I bought them. It seems like I bought some kind of needles from someone here. Any help would be appreciated.

    Here is what they look like.

    Every time I order the 'small' one from Havel's--they only send the 'big' one. McKenzie does carry the 'smaller' of the two that you show, but not sure about a size 3? I'm assuming that the #3 is smaller than the two you are showing? Never even seen one smaller than the #2 you are showing.

    Thanks for the replies. Yes the size 3 is smaller than the others. I guess because it is smaller it penetrates the deer hide easier than the #2. I started using my #2 when I ran out of #3 & I can tell the difference.

    OTS only shows sizes 1 & 2 on the website. I don't have a catalog, so I will have to call them.
  5. Maybe these? Except they are "style" #3.
