I had considered buying a normal 1 3/4 set and splicing in an extension myself. I am not sure what kind of metal rod I would need to do that yet. But, it should be able to be welded in as far as I know. I have seen a thread here in which it was done.
Really interested in what others have done so I can come to an affordable solution.
My door is slightly over 3" thick total, the extension piece I got was around 5", I believe, to go into the handles on each end. It ended up that my neighbor owns the hardware store down the street from me that I ordered the knob for. He also ordered the long piece for me, separately, from Emtek. I dont even recall what that part is called.
Here is the knob I got... pretty boring and standard, but well made and nice... I got the flat black finish.
