Are your handles available ex stock?
Yes, we have large stock holdings of handles and can cater for the immediate demands of large architectural projects, many thousands of cabinetmakers and the home renovator consumer.

Germany, Italy, USA, Spain, U.K, Taiwan, and Poland.
Are your handles good quality?
Of course, YES!! All our handles pass a stringent selection process. This is imperative to us as we offer a lifetime warranty on all our handles and because handles are to be 'the finishing touch' to you cabinetry. Less than perfect handles just don't cut it.

What do you recommend for an outdoor Kitchen?
We don't recommend our handles for outdoor use. Your warranty will be voided if handles are in an outdoor setting.

No. it is acidic. Use warm soapy water only.
Can I use the same products such a Windex and Ajax spray that I use on my cupboard fronts?
There are varying version of these products and you will need to check the MSDS to determine the acidic content. A diluted PH neutral detergent could be suitable. Always test a small area of the underside handle first. Our recommendation is to use warm soapy water only.
What is a living finish?
Cast iron is a living finish and base material is iron. Iron is treated and given a pewter effect finish and then further treated to achieve anti corrosion properties.
Will the finish rust?
The daily handling and wiping of these handles will maintain the finish. If left unused the finish can rust.
What do I use to clean the cast iron range of handles?
Warm soapy water and a soft cloth.
Will each concrete knob be the same?
Part of the charm of concrete handles is that every item is unique and as such, each will be slightly different from each other. The shades and texture of concrete can vary. The knobs contain air bubbles in varying amounts which only adds to their unique character.
Will the knobs stain or absorb moisture?
The concrete knobs are protected by a waterproofing sealant which is applied in four stages. This does not affect the natural appearance and texture of the concrete.
