This faucet is heavy, sleek, and beautiful. Unfortunately it was also too tall for my new vessel sink so I could not use it. I am very disappointed because it is exactly the look I wanted. The oil rubbed bronze is dark with highlights of the more copper color. This is one of the best looking faucets I have ever seen. I debated keeping it just in case I put a deeper vessel sink in another bath in the future.
We purchased one of the Kraus vessel sinks probably 5 years ago. It is still beautiful, but our hard well water left water marks on the "waterfall" glass faucet and caused the paint on the back to wear off near where the water drips off the lip. At the same time, we remodeled the bathroom and switched to oil rubbed bronze, so the chrome no longer worked. I chose this tall oil rubbed bronze Kraus faucet because I though the height and the reach of the faucet would replace the old one nicely. As it turns out, I like it a lot better! It's sturdy, looks really expensive, and fit perfectly in the granite countertop hole that was carved out for the waterfall faucet that we needed to replace. This was a great solution.
I've ordered this brand before (in a different style) and was happily surprised by the quality and good looks. I ordered this particular style in brushed nickel for a guest bathroom and liked it so much I decided to order the same model but in the oil rubbed bronze for the master bathroom. I am equally happy with both. It's hard to imagine how a faucet could feel so sturdy yet look elegant at the same time. Kraus has managed to this with it's Ventus Single Lever faucet.

Purchased a Kingston brass faucet back in 2011 for my half bath. Started leaking shortly after. Called the manufacturer and they sent a new cartridge. Still leaked. Lived with it for a while thinking it was the O rings. Replaced all the O rings. Still leaked. Shouldn't have let so much time go by. My fault. So I orderd this Kraus faucet. It is beautiful, sturdy, well made and so far doesn't leak. My husband installed it and had to turn down the water pressure at the shut off valves because the water pressure is so great.
