Egg Style Keyed Entry Door Knob Set with Classic Rosette the Emergency Exit Function
One night we locked ourselves out and called a locksmith to help us get into the house without breaking any windows. He could NOT get into any doors (since they are ALL Baldwin's ... as seen in above picture). Luckily, our daughter's car was left parked outside our home and the locksmith picked her car door, which opened immediately, and we were able to get into house ... luckily, she forgot her remote garage door opener in her glove compartment and we were able to get in. The locksmith told us that the Baldwin's was one BEST investment we did when building our Home!

We had ordered another brand first and were disappointed with the quality and decided to try these instead. The handles are a pound each and when you take a hold of them they feel substantial and turn smoothly. I can't imagine anyone not being satisfied with these knobs, the slightly higher price was so worth it, I will probably never have to buy knobs again unless I want a different style or color and they would definitely be Baldwin.

Good lock, nice finish
I purchased locks for my new home, I ordered a set of Baldwin locks. I am very pleased with my choice. The locking function is very smooth and the overall look of the product is outstanding.

worth the money
These are a very substantially constructed lockset, the heft of this will impress you the moment you remove it from the box.
The egg shaped handle is much easier to operate than the round ones. We have also tried the lever handles and they are too easy for our dogs to get the door open.
The icing on the cake was the ability to get them keyed to match our other ones we had bought within the last couple of years.
We highly recommend the product and the company.

Beautiful Entry Door Knob!
This is a very well made, solid door knob. We are using it for an exterior gate and it looks very classy and has a very weighty feel and matches our rustic architecture. I would highly recommend this door knob set. It is expensive but worth it not only for the high end look but the security it offers.

Entry door knobs
Very pleased with these. Solid construction, you can feel they are solid, not stamped metal. Highly recommended, price was good and shipped quickly even with many lock sets having to be keyed alike.

This handleset wears well and looks great. We replaced an older Baldwin set. The old set still looks new. We just wanted a change.

All Baldwin stuff is a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. Solid brass, heavy duty construction, no comparison.

Baldwin Egg 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.
