Yesterday I went to a friends house and scraped up my right middle finger on the door jam while turning the egg shaped door knob. A few minutes later, another friend arrived and did the same thing! While the egg shaped knob looks ok, somehow it's design brings the hand closer to the jam than a round knob. Perhaps it wasn't installed in the right place and should have been inset a little more? Don't know about that, but I do know it hurt like hell!
