Passage Door Leverset with the Woodward Rosette from the Utica Series
Not impressed 2 years after installation
We installed over 15 of these handle sets during a major remodel 2 years ago. They have not held up and we are now replacing with Baldwin. The finish peels, especially on the handles that receive the most use. All of the handles have drooped and no longer sit at a 90 degree angle. The locking mechanism sticks on a few of the handles. We also have to tighten the screws that secure the interior and exterior back plate almost monthly to keep them square with the door frame. Do not waste your money on these handles unless you expect to use them very sparingly or perform routine monthly maintenance. For a house with kids and a lot of traffic they are not a good fit!

I ordered 4 of these, and one ended up not working. The style was great, the finish was good, but it did not function.
I am now going to try to return this. We will see how good Handlesets.com return policy is!

We are very pleased with the look and feel of these lever sets. They look and feel very expensive and yet they were affordable. We have already gotten many compliments from the builder and his contractors. They all want to know where we got them.

I love the look of these handle sets. The rectangle backplate is beautiful and they look substantial. The problem is that all of them droop a bit in the resting position, so the handles appear at a 75-85 degree angle to the backplate. They were just installed, so they're stiff now and I can tap them upwards to get them to sit at a 90 degree angle but I'm sure they'll loosen over time and I won't have that option. I'm wishing now that I'd gone with a higher end brand.

Sleek & Modern
As we were building in Texas, I was looking for contemporary door handles - something hard to find in the local box hardware stores. Handlesets provided me great options, and these compliment our overall design - thanks!

good replacement item
This was a good match to a cheap chinese-made lever knob that cratered after a few years. Looks good and went in easily. Ask me again in 5 years -- maybe this is cheap metal too - hard to tell.

Love the door knobs
The finish was perfect with our new house and the lever handle makes it easy to open doors with full hands - a must at the beach. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent lockset very fine finish. Looks great in our home.
Perfect match to our Weslock front door set.

Love the look
Our home is in the Craftsman style and the clean lines of these handles are a great fit for this look.
