These are weighty, 'beefy' handles. They feel very substantial, but not too big, in your hand. They were easy to install. In fact, we were able to reuse the screws from the previous 3" center handles. That made installation much easier and quicker. I am a tad dissapointed some of them arrived with minor knicks and scratches which allowed the base metal color to show through. We were able to put these in inconspicuous places but I'm worried about future scratches to the handles which were in good condition. All in all, I really like these; they added a tiny depth of character to my kitchen.
