not quite what I expected

"Looking for something that would be a reasonable match for drawer-front Shaker pull-handles to fit a tall pull-out larder, I ordered these. They were not in stock at the time but arrived next day.
They're great, functional handles, well finished and strong and I'm sure they will easily outlast me and all my progeny's progeny and probably won't tarnish, unlike a lot of the brass-EFFECT and nickel-EFFECT tat that passes for ironmongery these days (who would have thought that brass cup hooks could _rust_, for example?... bah!)
No, these seem to be god quality kit. The fixing screws were too short for an inch-thick door, though, so that was an unforeseen hassle (the door is unfortunately a rounded-edge foil covered effort that is extremely heavy and came cheap so I'm using it until I fit a paneled all-wood door, which may take a Very Long Time.)
From the site photographs I assumed that the front of the handle would have a convex profile, and was rather surprised to find they were, in fact concave.
In fact they look disconcertingly as if they've been tinkered up from a pair of Georgian teaspoons with the tops of the handle chopped off and then joined like a push-me-pull-you double-ended spoon, bent round a former and mounted. It's a sensible shape, and the spoon hollow takes one's thumb quite comfortably, but it's an impression -:spoon!:- that won't go away; they look like they've been made by some talented madman -:spoon!:- from found cutlery. Maybe the -:spoon!:- original _was_?
If I ever see 128mm centred Shakers, I may replace them, but it's a very low priority. I can live with the "spoons," even though the same mental process -:spoon!:- is bound to happen every time I - or anyone else, probably - goes to use the larder, and I hate having my brain -:spoon!:- hi-jacked.
If you don't mind becoming obsessive about surreal cutlery, I recommend this -:spoon!:- product."
