PLEASE NOTE: OPENERS #7 AND #8 ARE TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK

These letter openers have been very popular. They're not only elegant, distinctive and unique, they're also functional and durable; the perfect gift for Mother's Day, Father's Day, birthdays, graduation, confirmation, Bar Mitzvah, etc. Several of my customers take them along on trips to give as hostess gifts. Each opener is unique; no two are exactly alike (see photos).

NOTE: THERE ARE SEPARATE CLOSE-UP PHOTOS FOR OPENERS 1-4 AND 5-8.

Each blade is laminated between the two pieces that make up the handle (see photos). The letter opener is approximately 9 1/2" long and has been sanded to a satiny-smooth surface (400 grit), and finished with 2 coats of gloss lacquer and buffed with hard wax.

All of the woods in these openers are hardwoods. COCOBOLO (from Central America) has a rich, light brown-to-orange color with beautiful dark highlights. FIGURED MAPLE, which is usually off-white, features distinctive wavy grain patterns. BOLIVIAN ROSEWOOD (from Bolivia, of course) is an especially beautiful hardwood, light brown with dark grainy highlights. PURPLEHEART (from Central and South America) is an especially dense hardwood, once used in the construction of Spanish galleons, with a color that varies from bright to brownish purple. PADAUK (from Central and Tropical West Africa) varies in color from bright to dark red with a darker, often wavy grain. BLACK WALNUT is a beautiful dark-colored and dark-grained hardwood from here in the United States. YELLOWHEART (from Brazil) varies from pale to bright yellow, with golden flecks in the grain. All of these hardwoods finish with a glassy smooth, glossy surface, which feels very good in the hand.

Any of these openers will add elegance to a desk at home or in the office. Give them as gifts, buy one for yourself, or both. The blade will hold its edge for a long time (I've used one to open daily mail for several years and haven't had to sharpen it yet!). After being asked by a customer, I determined that the handles or the blades of my openers can be engraved. I can't do the engraving myself, but there are engravers in most cities.

If the blade gets chipped or becomes too dull to suit you, send it back to me postage-paid (email me for an address). I'll resharpen and refinish it, and return it to you AT NO ADDITIONAL COST.

Regular shipping is by First Class mail. Priority Mail option is available.
