Otto, the Otter

An exclusive otter door knocker design known as Otto. The inspiration came from the otters we often see in Scotland on the River Forss.

Knocker stop width: 37mm

Our door knockers are handcrafted so there may be some minor variations to the images. Each piece is truly unique, engraved with our trademark and finished to order. It is presented in a complimentary wooden gift box.

Otto is the most recent addition to our door knocker collection and probably our most ambitious. We were keen to portray the traits of an otter; its powerful webbed feet, long body, thick fur and muscular tail as well as show its playful personality. Our otter door knocker is facing down on the door with his head slightly raised making a perfect hand-hold for knocking. Otto’s head is tilted indicating alertness to danger and we added a fish in his jaws to enhance the link to the wilderness. We have tried to capture the natural characteristics of this wild creature as closely as possible; typical of an otter, his ears are almost hidden in his fur and his eyes are small.

The fixing bracket is hidden underneath his tail and rump to ensure it is unseen by visitors as they approach your door. Otto is one of our smaller door knockers but he still pulls a punch weighing just over 700g. He knocks with his front paws which carry the weight to make a resounding knock. A truly unique piece, our otter door knocker is a perfect addition to a riverside or coastal property.

What we love…

  • Unusual design with fish in jaws
  • Detailing of webbed feet and fur
  • Perfect for coastal or riverside property
  • Made entirely by hand
  • Bracket is invisible from the front

Fitting your door knocker

Made entirely by hand and fitted using an easy surface-mounted fixing, there are no visible screws on either side of the door. Our door knockers are suitable for wood doors as well as solid core composite doors and all screws and fittings are supplied.


Aged Brass (natural)

An aged finish is achieved using a natural chemical-free patination process. Your door knocker will continue to age and, after many years, develop a bronze colour. A metal cleaner can be used to restore the colour and give it a natural sheen or it can be left to age and cleaned using a dry cloth and soft toothbrush. We recommend using a clear wax after cleaning.

Aged Brass (with sealant)

You can choose to add a sealant to our aged brass finish. It is a transparent clear protective coating that helps prevent your door knocker from ageing further. It does not alter the appearance or colour of the finish. You should not use a metal cleaner on sealed products, simply clean periodically with a dry soft cloth or brush. A clear wax is recommended after cleaning for added protection.

Polished Brass

Our polished brass door knockers are highly polished until bright and shiny. To maintain this appearance, your door knocker will require regular cleaning with a metal cleaner. If left unpolished, it will tarnish and age naturally developing an aged patina. Depending on the environment, it will be the same colour as our aged finish in roughly two years.

Raven Black

We apply a patina to the brass which creates a soft black colour with a satin finish. The brass is baked and the colour is left to mature before we add our sealant to protect the finish. Little maintenance is required, simply wipe periodically with a soft cloth. A clear wax can be applied for added protection.

Satin Silver

We use a metal plating process over the brass to achieve a stylish silver with a matt finish. This finish matches well with either pewter or satin nickel door furniture. Our sealant is applied to protect the finish. Little maintenance is required, simply wipe periodically with a soft cloth and warm soapy water. A clear wax can be applied for added protection.

Otter door knocker

I’m delighted with my otter door knocker, it was just what I was looking for, and it looks brilliant on my door. The attention to detail from the design, directions on how to put it up, and the presentation box (which now holds by dog brushes!) was faultless.

Beautiful piece

I bought the Otter door knocker in raven black; the quality of the engraving, its weight and the care with which it’s crafted is indeed rare. Individual to each piece made. It has been made with love and attention. I think I need more than one door so I can keep buying these gorgeous objects. As a knocker, really solid and functional. And the craftsmanship on the box exceeded all expectations. Thank you :)
