This is badly designed and badly made. The design is needlessly different from a normal knob. Instead of the "outside" knob being held on with a grub-screw, the spindle is held with a "top hat" which is very fiddly to fix because the screws are too close to the hole for the spindle and the threaded part of the spindle works in the threaded part of the top hat. Worse, as supplied, the spindle was such a slack fit in the "outside" knob that it rotated (and there is nothing to lock it in place because the back plate and knob are one unit, which goes over the "top hat"). I ended up throwing away the "top hat" part and drilling and tapping the "outside" knob for a 2BA grub screw to lock them together properly. It now works well, but as supplied it was not fit for purpose and basically useless.

Poor grub screw
Good quality, solid and heavy weight. However the traditional grub screw has been substituted by an allen key screw made with very soft metal which results in the hexagonal hole stripping/burring under even moderate turning pressure. This means some of the knobs fail to tighten adequately onto the spindle, and I have had to resort to glue on two of ours. A basic and fundamental design flaw, especially considering the high price and otherwise good quality. Not recommended.

First class quality
I'v not found anything as good as this in any DIY store. Not cheap but well worth every penny - very solid and classy and a good replacement for the old victorian one - it looks really good on the old door. Makes all my other doorknobs look really tatty so am going to replace them ALL.

Finish and design of Brass Door Knob good. Delighted the screw mounting holes were not angled as on some suppliers products. The only downside of this is that knob needs removing in order to correctly drill screw holes. A template would be useful.
