Drawer pulls - Where to get

You guys that have bought drawer pulls and knobs, where do you shop for good quality stuff? I'm not interested in the sub-par/overpriced products sold by the local Lowe's/HD stores.

Not sure if you need an account or not as I purchase through a family company.

At least check Amazon. Can get an idea of the quality from the reviews and Q&As. I usually make my own or dig in my bin from garage sales and flea markets.

We got some recently from Myknobs.com. And sometimes Wayfair has some pretty good values too.

Online is a good option. Search cabinet hardware, you can also combine search with key words like " oil rubbed bronze.

I purchase whereever I find what I want. Lowes, etc. may be where I find what I want. I do not go in with some ill advised, preconceived notion that what I find there will be no good.

Woodworkershardware and CShardware. Lee Valley very limited selection. Recently bought some hinges from them that were pretty poorly made.


That said, I've bought quite a few utility type pulls from Amazon that were not bad and extremely cheap.


For a brass I take a big gulp and to Horton Brasses. :-D

We have a variety of local sources. We like to touch and feel before we buy. Some sources are nationwide, like Rockler. The rest are local to us in Southern California:

* We bought a large assortment of Jeffrey Alexander brand "Tiffany" knobs and pulls in brushed nickel for our kitchen. I don't like or dislike Jeffrey Alexander knobs and pulls. They feel like good quality to me, but I really do not know if they are up to your quality requirements. Spouse chose them based on looks. They have held up well in our kitchen over four years. We got them at 405 Cabinets in Fountain Valley. They supply pre-made cabinets and a selection of hardware to go with them, but are not a hardware store per se. (Rockler shows Jeffrey Alexander hardware on their website, but I think they may be discontinuing them. You can find them from many other sources.) http://www.405cabinets.com

* Woodward's Ace in Santa Ana (located near Orange/Tustin). They are a special, old school hardware store. We are willing to make the longer drive past other hardware stores to go there.
https://www.woodwardsace.com

* New York Hardware in Costa Mesa. They carry a very wide range of high quality products, but they are expensive. Parking is a pain. Back into the parking slots, or you may never get out.
http://www.nyhardware.com

* Muff's Antiques at the "Circle" in Orange. They have knobs, pulls, catches, locks, etc. etc. etc. to replace old, antique ones that you cannot find anywhere else. They are a national treasure, or at least a local one. Once in a while I have a nightmare that the owners may someday retire.
http://www.muffshardware.com

P.S. Related to knobs and pulls and accessibility.

Some people have joint issues. I have seen pull designs that force the hand into unnatural positions. I don't like pulls that force the hand to twist in a certain direction to use them. Some are shaped like upside-down cups, for example. They hurt some people by forcing them to orient their hands into uncomfortable positions to use them. Many pulls force you to flip your hand upside-down with fingers pointed up to open cabinets and drawers. They can hurt to use them.

I prefer open pulls where the hand can grasp them in either direction, with fingers up or down. Those same pulls offer left or right handed use when mounted vertically on doors, too. For people with joint issues, they make a difference.

The same thing is true for door knobs vs. levers.

Try Googling a premium manufacturer like Baldwin, Colonial Bronze, or Rocky Mountain Bronze. The online outlets that sell one top of the line product will usually sell others.

A customer of ours. Theirs is probably not "high end", it is probably in the realm of "exotic".

My error. This is architectural hardware (doors) not cabinet hardware.

I have a commercial shop and buy from Hafele, I think you can also buy from them via their net site. Most of the other places we buy from are "to the trade" only. Discounts to the trade are BIG. There is a big range in price/quality and price doesn't necessarily relate to quality. Horton Brass is nice but be prepared for sticker shock.

Lowe's for me. Ordering online sometimes has a shipping cost that is an outrageous % of the cost of the items. Plus, I like to see what I'm getting.

There are only so many companies making the hardware, take a look around at the displays offered by your local cabinet distributors, find a brand and style you like and then after touching and feeling it go online and find the best deal on that product.

He's probably at Lowe's or HD looking at drawer pulls.


Re the original post: AHturf.com offers a lot of cabinet hardware. I ordered a bunch of Blum hinges from them; pricing was very good IMO. Pricing may be attractive on their knobs, pulls, etc.

Other sources are artisans that will make whatever you want. People that work in hot glass, ceramics, blacksmithing, metal casting, etc....
