In an era of mass production, flimsy materials, and often disappointing quality, Baldwin Brass is a breath of fresh air. When I was about 14, I remember going to a locksmith with my mom to pick out a lock for our front door. Baldwin had those cool displays with a functional door knob and lock on what amounted to a really small door (it sat on their order desk).

The making of Baldwin hardware – by hand!

I still remember the heavy, solid feel of the lock, and how it automatically unlocked when you turned the lever from the inside – all with very satisfying clicks. Not one to break with fanatical brand loyalty, I recently ordered numerous new Baldwin door levers and locks from an online retailer. Baldwin makes serious hardware if you’re determined to keep the boogeyman out of your abode in style.

About Marc Lyman

Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine! For his complete profile, please visit our About page. Really, it's worth it.
