Our Finishes

Over time our team have developed and refined a range of different copper and brass finishes. Click the options below to learn more about our range of unique finishes. 

All finishes, with the exception of our natural copper or brass, are treated with an appropriate protective coating in order to help to protect and preserve the chosen finish. We make use of either a marine grade lacquer or a natural beeswax finish, with these varying depending on their suitability for the chosen finish.



High Polish




Matt Black

Copper Handle

Our Natural Finishes are amongst the most popular of our finishes range.

Over time, copper and brass that is left untreated will develop a natural layer of tarnish, darkening in colour to a variety of rustic tones. This layer brings both anti-microbial and corrosion resistant properties, making it a perfect choice for both indoor and outdoor use. 

Available in copper or brass.

Satin Handle

Our Satin Finishes are polished and finished to the same level of polish as our natural finishes, however each item is then protected with multiple coats of lacquer to protect and prevent natural tarnish from occuring.

Available in copper or brass. 

High polished handle

Our High Polish Finish involves taking the copper or brass through a number of stages of polishing in order to obtain an extremely deep and reflective surface.  This finish is perfect for obtaining a striking and luxurious feel in the chosen material. 

Available in copper or brass.

Antique aged handle

For our Antique Finish, we take the copper or brass through a natural tarnishing process. This process allows us to darken the material and give a finish that is bold and full of character. 

Available in copper or brass.

Marbled copper handle

For our Marbled finish, copper is heat-treated in order to create a colourful rainbow effect on the materials surface. Once a desired effect is achieved, this finish is lacquered to prevent the finish from dulling.

Available in copper.

Verdigris copper handle

Verdigris refers to the natural blue-green patina that develops when copper weathers as a result of exposure to air and seawater over time. Usually this is a natural process that occurs over many years, we however could not wait that long to release this finish as option on our copper hardware.

Available in copper.

Matt black copper handle

Our Matt Black Finishes are dyed in order to achieve a jet black appearance. Once a desired finish has been achieved, we lacquer the copper to freeze the state and prevent the colour from being lost. 

Available in copper.

Copper & Brass Benefits

Made to order




Crafting brass handles
Every handle is manufactured to order on-site in our Brighton workshop in the UK. 
With each handle being made to order, this allows us the freedom to build to our customers specifications and unique preferences. 

If you're looking for a custom size or specification for your project, do not hesitate to get in touch and we'll be happy to help. 
One of the brilliant properties of copper and brass is their ability to prevent the growth and proliferation of harmful germs, bacteria and viruses that are spread with the human touch.

Natural copper and brass when left unlacquered is a self cleaning metal, which is why we think that it is the ideal choice for handles. 

Use the scroll function on the image above to see an example of the natural tarnish of copper over time. This later of tarnish can either be left to develop over time, or alternatively can easily be cleaned and restored to its original shine. 
Copper Earth
At Proper Copper Design, we believe that our natural planet is worth protecting! that is why our products are crafted from recycled metals such as copper which can be returned and recycled time and again.

In fact 80% of copper that has ever been mined Worldwide is still in circulation today. In our workshop we ensure that all of our handles are engineered to be strong enough to last the test of time and are wrapped in eco-friendly packaging. 
Range of different handle finishes
Our range of handle collections cover a wide range of of different styles of finish, making each of the final designs a true statement piece.

From colourful marbled copper to traditional antique handles, we take great pride in working with genuine metals and high quality polishing and lacquering techniques. Please let us know if you have a bespoke finishes request for your handle project.
