You have so many! I have two :D Bookbinder's needles, that is. This reminds me that I've never learnt to use curved needles for some reason, although I have tried using them on many occasions.

Most of the books I made recently are sewn with several, sometimes up to 12 needles simultaneously - so I need a couple :-) Also I sell bookbinding kits which contains needles. These are different types and mostly harness needles. If you follow the link above, you'll see more.

Apart from once in a workshop I also never used curved needles. They tend to twist and turn in my fingers and I don't like it. The bent needles behave much better, and are needed when a concertina is incorporated into a Coptic sewing - and then you need several bent ones for one binding...
