Tahoe Style Solid Brass Door Knocker
Antique Nickel is darker than it looks..
The quality is excellent, a very well made piece, and as others have said this is the only quality somewhat modern/contemporary mission style knocker I could find
The antique nickel version of this knocker is a bit darker than it looks in the picture. I had to return for satin nickel to match the brushed nickel handles, hinges, etc on my door. Be careful of that.
I will give a "shout out" to handlesets.com for the return - it took a bit of work, but I was able to talk to a live person who saw the return/exchange to the end, and the person honored their commitment to the exchange and credit.

It stands out from the street
I am so pleased with our purchase. I was afraid that I would not be getting what the item description described because the cost was so reasonable compared to retail. When I received my items, I was so happy that it was exactly what I ordered.
The customer service was excellent. I will definately order from this company and all of it's subsidiaries again.

I knocker was darker than I thought it would be and no shine. I have antique silver door handle so hard to find matching door knocker. I still was happy with the knocker it is unique looking. I like the size it is large and knocks loud

This is a truly lovely door knocker. It's very heavy and very classy..looks awesome on my door. I searched online quite a long while before ordering it and found nothing that looked as good...and it's even lovelier in person.

I just want to reiterate the reviews that others have posted. This is not a cheap plastic shell of a door knocker. This thing is substantial. Great price for the quality.

Great Door Knocker
Quick and prompt delivery, product arrived packaged well. Not your average door knocker, and it looks great with the Mission/Craftsman style home we built.

This is certainly a beautiful door knocker (I got it in life-time brass) and it looks quite well made. I just didn't expect it to be quite as big as it is (making it a little unproportional to the size of the other door hardware in my particular case). It's rather a heavy piece of hardware as well, which I think is good.
Installation was easy -- it required two properly positioned holes through the door. Therein also lies one of my points of criticism: I didn't particularly like having to drill through the entire door; I would have preferred a hook-on type hanging mechanism, which would have required two holes in the front of the door.
Also, while the screws on the inside of the door are brass and are seated in some proper washers, I would have preferred it if the Phillips screws could be covered. Lastly, the sound of the door knocker is ok but no particularly nice, which is probably a result of my particular door but also the fact that the knocker's large base is hollow (albeit, the metal is pretty thick).
Overall, I was pretty happy with the purchase -- it's beauty and ease of installation made its shortcomings forgivable.

This Door knocker is super quality. We were impressed as soon as we opened it. Recommend to use it on a dark colored door so that it really pops.

We looked everywhere for a door knocker with a more modern look. This one surpassed our expectations. It's very nice. Highly recommend it.

Great Door knocker
This looks very sharp and the quality is great. I had a hard time finding a contemporary looking door knocker and when I found this one, I was delighted. The service here on Handlesets.com is always great and I had very prompt shipping.
