The MKN Range of Panel Beaten Brass and Copper Knobs
The MKN Range of Panel Beaten Brass and Copper Knobs are beautiful hand-crafted knobs that are absolute eye-catchers.
Using 100% brass or copper, depending on the knob, these knobs are panel beaten into shape with their decorative pattern stamped out into the material. They are then stained in one of a variety of colours, this stain is then polished off, leaving the stain only in the grooves and gullies of the pattern. The end result is a stunning vintage look that is perfect for up-cycling an otherwise boring and plain old piece of furniture into a thing of beauty.
The knobs come with a 4.5mm screw fixed into the back of the body of the knob. This is adjustable in length by loosening the locking nut and either screwing the shaft in, or out,of the knob. This is not a difficult procedure.
The knobs, by the nature of being panel beaten, are hollow and light. Please don’t be disappointed by this, it is simply how they have to be when made in this fashion. That said, we have seen flimsier copies on the market where a lower grade material has been used. We have sold thousands of these knobs and, by and large, our customers absolutely love them, however one or two have been disgruntled by the fact that they are hollow, so please take note.

Additionally, our collections offer you handles and knobs that were designed to go together. Often, they will have design characteristics and details that run through the various items within the collection.
