This is a modern take on the traditional letter opener. We weren’t impressed with the letter openers we had in our office so we made our own. You can buy one like it. This is not sharp! We can put a fine edge on it if you like, but this is traditional dulled edge. The blade is 4.5″ long and the total length is 9.5″. The handle is done in a dark, rich cut of Arizona ironwood. The pins are 416 stainless steel. One of kind.
