Boye Interchangeable Hooks What's Old Is New Again

I used a Hobby Lobby 40% off coupon to buy the a new Boye interchangeable crochet hook set.

I just had to have a set to compare to the set that Boye made in the 1930's.

What do you think?

I like the case on the new hooks but think the old ones are better looking.

You can order the new INTERCHANGEABLE HEAD CROCHET HOOK SET from Amazon...the vintage one you'll have to order from me.
