Hell on needles

I love bamboo needles. They do not love me.

These are pieces of one needle that sheered off yesterday. A couple of weeks ago I got a splinter from this same needle. I am contemplating buying some replacements, but I'm 18 pattern repeats of 24 done on the pink scarf, so I'm not sure it's really worth it.
This is the sad and tragic state of said needle.
So, to buy new needles, to sand this needle into submission, or to just keep calm and carry on?

New needle for sure! You would hate to have even more shredding and have it shred your yarn. Yuck!

Can't wait to see the final product!!
