I have carefully selected a finely figured, special piece of rare burl wood to make this Letter Opener, and have turned and polished it smooth. The wood is Amboyna Burl, one of the worlds most valuable woods.
A wooden letter opener feels warm in the hand. It is a gem of nature brought to your daily life, nicely balanced, durable, and beautiful. A classy piece of usable artwork to dress up your desk, and make opening mail a pleasure!
My Letter Openers are constructed of quality materials, to be strong and durable. The handle has a core of brass tubing glued in for stability, with the 10K Gold plated Blade threaded into it for strength. The durable 10K Gold plating will last longer than lower quality Letter Openers with thinner soft gold plating.
Note: This Letter Opener is a sharp metal instrument. The blade of this instrument is intended to cut paper for the purpose of opening letters. It is not intended to be used as a screwdriver or pry bar, as that will probably break the blade. It is also hard and sharp enough to cause injury if used irresponsibly. Please be careful!
Each of my Pens and Letter Openers is presented on a card telling the materials that it is made from. If your letter opener ever breaks, I will gladly fix or replace it.
