Non Handed Keyed Entry Door Leverset with the Woodward Rosette from the Utica Series
beautiful but prone to failure
I purchased these door handles for all our inside doors and outer doors (except for the front door) when we built our house 4 years ago. I just loved the look of the handle and the price was comparatively low to other similarly looking products. After only 4 years of normal use one of the handles actually broke off. All the handles that we use daily now sag and are loose. At this time, I'm not going to replace all the door handles in my house so I bought a replacement handle for the one that broke and an extra one to have on hand for when the next one goes. At some point I'll probably have to replace all the handles in my house. I still love the overall design, finish and the way the handles look when they line up nicely but sagging levers are not very attractive.

Pros & Cons
We recently purchased several of these leversts for our new home. The results:
Pros: They appear to be good quality and went together quite easily.
Cons: Handles do sag a few degrees in some cases. Also the push-button to activate the lock is located directly behind the lever. We've noticed it's easy to inadvertantly hit the button while turning the handle, especially with gloves on. This can lock the door without you realizing it, which could be a problem if you walk outside without a key.

Love this handset!
I love the look of this handset. It's a beautiful color and it is solidly built. It fits the hand well, and it's easy to install. The push button lock was new to me, but I love it! I purchased this with the matching deadbolt and it makes a really striking statement on my front door.

Great entry knob
This is a very high quality knob. We love the solid feel and it looks great with our arts and crafts home. It comes with several versions of the door strike to fit whatever has already been cut out of the jamb. Very nice. We will be buying more of these for other doors in the house.
