Notes Karl Decker has completed the offical craft program of Germany under Professor Gottfried Bockelmann. He is a production turner. Environmentally conscious, Decker uses bone instead of ivory in these traditional door handles. The handle on the left is Decker's own design which uses a multi-axis approach to improve the comfort of the grip.
