Black Door Knockers

‘Raven Black’

Our black door knockers have a charcoal appearance with a deep brown undertone and a matt finish. In some lights, the colour may even be mistaken for a very dark bronze. We call it ‘raven black’ due to its similarity in colour to a raven’s feather.

Our black door knockers are crafted in brass, so they are strong, durable and resistant to corrosion. To achieve the colour, we apply a chemical that reacts with the brass creating a beautiful black patina. The knocker is then baked and left to mature. Finally, a sealant is added which fixes the colour and provides protection against the elements. Little maintenance is required, just wipe with a soft cloth to remove any residue.

Our black door knockers look particularly striking on a pastel or light-coloured front door and they would suit either a town or country house.

We offer our whole door knocker collection in Raven Black.

Useful Information


Our black door knockers have a discreet and secure surface mounted fitting. There will be no visible screws and you will not need to drill a hole through your door. Easy to install, each knocker is supplied with screws suitable for wooden and solid core composite doors.

Made by hand

Our products are made by skilled artisans using traditional techniques. Each door knocker is cast in two or more parts then expertly welded and engraved. The beauty of crafting with traditional methods is that the intricate detail of each design can be realised. Every door knocker we forge cools down with little idiosyncrasies, that’s why it’s so special.


Our products are packaged in a wooden keepsake box. In fact, every part of our packaging is designed to be recycled or repurposed. A significant advantage of hand casting products in brass is that the remnants from each cast or any imperfections can be melted down and reused. We do not hold a large amount of stock across all our finishes, instead each door knocker is completed to order at our workshop in Devon, UK.
