The finish should match the rest of the hardware. Door knockers not only come in many finishes they are available in many types of metal. The most stable metal and probably the most common is brass. Brass is easy to machine and cast into shapes. It polishes into a bright gold like finish or satins easily and is easy to maintain. Brass also electroplates readily. This allows it to be nickel or copper plated to simulate pewter and bronze finishes. Because brass is non ferrous it will not rust. It will tarnish though for this reason a good lacquer finish is needed or your purchase will look terrible in a very short time.

This will give you a frame of reference for what size you would like to use. A knocker is a wonderful way to add new beauty to any door. Replace other old and worn hardware with beautiful replacements pieces including the door knob deadbolt kick plate doorbell and mail slot. A complete entryway set can be created with a common theme or finish. Ask questions and search for high quality materials to ensure durability. The entryway of the home is the most prominent feature guests and homeowners will see and a worthwhile investment. Door knocker is not only a beautiful accessory on the front gate but also serves as a reflection of to the visitors.

In olden times there were two different hand-knockers one male and one female as it was considered inappropriate for the woman of the house to open the door to a man. Visitors would use the knocker according to their gender. Each knocker would make a different sound so the woman of the house would know whether or not she should open the door. These gender-based knockers have become less popular in modern times. Door knockers have been used to symbolize everything from hospitality to good luck to warding off bad spirits. With recent ironmongery technology more iconic door knockers can be made by twisting the metal into intricate designs.
