Handles are very strong and of great quality. Style is perfect. Item shown has a sheen but the actual item has a rough, rustic texture. Overall, these handles will look amazing in my kitchen but would have rather had a smooth finish. I would recommend them.
Beautifully crafted, heavy feel, definitely NOT cheap looking. Slight problem in mounting; needed to insert thin shims under the vertical latch holders to keep the latch from binding when opening. This was an easily correctible problem however and in no way detracts from the finished look. Would certainly buy this product and others from this vendor again.
