Classic Style Keyed Entry Door Knob Set with Classic Rosette the Emergency Exit Function
Smooth, solid operation.
As with our new deadbolts it's hard to be disappointed by this upgrade to our home. With each piece obviously engineered to a high, more robust standard, the operation of our doors and locks is much smoother and direct, even pleasant. Everything fit the with minor modification to the door jam and frame.

I knew that Baldwin locks were Top Notch but what I was really impressed with, was the service I received from Handlesets. The service that I received was just fantastic.
I would'nt consider ordering from anyone else. "TOP NOTCH"

All as expected
The lockset came in perfect condition. All parts and pieces were packaged well. The finish appears to be of good quality. The knob and deadbolt were keyed alike and the functionality of both items works great.

High end quality
These knobs are beatifully made, very solid and work smoothly. We purchased them in oil rubbed bronze and they look fantastic. We were impressed how heavy they were. A great buy.

Time will tell.
These entry door knobs are very smooth and seem very durable and of high quality. Lifetime warranty is a bonus. Time will tell if they live up to their reputation.

Baldwin round knobs
Bought Baldwin egg and round knobs and deadbolts to replace old sets of sagging Schlage lever handle hardware. The Baldwin sets were of high quality and easy to install as replacements. No regrets.
If I was to do it again though, I'd go with Baldwin egg knobs on all my doors. They give a very positive easy to grasp and turn feeling (good for arthritic hands or with slippery hands), don't catch on your clothes as you walk by (like the old lever handles did), and give better knuckle clearance from your fingers hitting the door jam when turning the knob like round knobs can do.
I did get a round knob set for one door which works well, but did worsen the "knuckles hitting door jam when opening" because the knob's diameter is slightly larger than the former Schlage hardware I had.
HandleSets did an excellent job of keying all the sets I ordered the same, and they provided 2 sets of keys per knob using Baldwin blanks - not cheap Schlage aftermarket blanks. And, the keys look like they were made from keycode, not on a generic keycutting machine so all the keys are precisely cut and work exactly like the originals.
Communication with HandleSets was very easy and smooth. Delivery took a little longer than I expected, but wasn't a problem because I wasn't in that much a hurry. Everything was packed and shipped well - no problems.
I would definitely recommend HandleSets and Baldwin, but prefer the egg knobs over traditional round knobs."
