Nice faucet from Kohler
Great looking faucet. The entire Forte series from Kohler are very nice. We liked the faucets in our daughter's bathroom so much, that we ordered two more for our master bathroom.

Great looking and very functional
The handles work so smoothly that one can turn them off with the back of your hand with out dripping any water around the faucet. I like the distance the faucet comes into the sink. For example, I find it useful while filling a container to give my dogs a drink. The only negative was that I had to pay extra for a metal drain cap rather than the plastic that was part of the package. I decided to pay extra, as I didn't know how the plastic would hold up in the long run.

Well made and attractive faucet
My wife and I were looking to purchase another style of Kohler faucet and were shown this model, too, at a local plumbing store. My wife instantly liked this faucet style and thought the brushed chrome was eye catching and different so we made the purchase through faucetdirect that day and saved abaout 25% off the retail store price. We were delighted to receive the faucets in less time than expected and installation took place soon thereafter. Kohler makes a great faucet both in style and durability but I will offer one comment about maintainence. We find you may have to exercise a little more care with brushed chrome to wipe away water drops after each use that may fall on the faucet and levers as they leave spots if left alone. It's not a big thing however, but anyone looking for beautiful "super easy care" faucets may want to consider the standard chrome finish.

Nice Faucet but....
The Kohler Forte brushed nickel faucet is really beautiful. Fits well in transitional to contemporary bathroooms. We have three of them in our contemporary baths. The handles turn efforlessly which is great when your hands are all soaped up. You can just use the back of your hand to turn on and off. However, as several other people have noted in various online reviews, some of these faucets spray outward unevenly rather than in a nice smooth straight flow. With one of the faucets, a little jiggling seems to have taken care of the problem. With another, nothing helped, including replacing the aerators. We took the aerator out and it is workable. The third worked fine from the beginning. There is something wrong with the aerators on these faucets. Nevertheless, I would buy them again because the look is perfect and we did manager to get them working OK. Dealing with Faucet Direct was a pleasure.

Quality brand product shipped in used packaging
The faucets look fine (not yet installed) as I knew Kohler products would be. I was shocked to receive two faucets in a used Lands' End box with crossed out shipping label. The faucets appear new, but both boxes had been opened and the parts were just thrown in. One box had writing on it. I do not know if I would order again because I expected factory-direct shipping, not re-selling.

We bought two of these in polished chrome to go with new Kohler Memiors sinks. The are simple but beautiful. The spout reaches into the sink nicely so you aren't bumping against the back of the sink when you are washing your hands. The lever handles are easy to maneuver even with soapy hands. Solid brass construction makes the faucets feel substantial and expensive.

Sleek styling, but...
I discounted another reviewer's comment that instead of a smooth jet, the water comes out in a scattered spray, thinking that the filter screen/aerator must have had debris in it and merely needed cleaning. But in my case, this is not the problem and I can't determine the cause of the splayed spray.

I purchased this Kohler lav set with fingers crossed, and it has turned out to be perfect for our needs. We have it installed with a Kohler Caxton vanity sink, and they're terrific together. I ended up buying more of them (in a different finish) to use in the other bathrooms. Great product!
