Selim Satin finish on either chrome or brass can be accomplished with mass finishing systems using dry organic materials treated with pumice. Normally it is sold premixed with a type of glue or binder to hold mix together. Depending on equipment and finish, this process can take a couple of hours to a couple of days.

For a brushed satin finish on a door handle the part needs to be pre-polished using either a Scotch Brite wheel, or a leewheel (using a greaseless polishing compound) or bead blasting. The part is then dull nickel plated, occasionally after dull nickel plating Scotch Brite is used to achieve a grain, then chrome plated after.

For Satin finish you need a Satin nickel on the brass prior to the chrome layer. The big supply houses have this product.
