Working in a Kaleidoscope
FSB lever handle 1171 owes its existence to a "crazy notion" hatched in FSB's tool-making shop. Back in the 1930s and 1940s, FSB had made a lever handle that entered design history as the "nickel-horn handle". It combined nickel plating with a black horn
grip.It was in 1992 that FSB's toolmakers set about recreating this classic design in tubular stainless steel using leading-edge technology. Their efforts led to a highly marketable design in modern materials.
