Wicks Forge

Personalized Letter Opener - Leaf

| /

These elegant leaf letter openers are hand forged and are about 8 inches long. Since each letter opener is handmade, they may vary in size-- however this means your piece is guaranteed to be one-of-a-kind.

Each metal letter opener is finished in a combination of linseed oil, beeswax, and turpentine, which leaves a smooth dark finish on the piece.

You can choose to have your envelope opener personalized with a set of initials, a name, or a short message, up to 10 characters. Please specify the personalization you would like during as you checkout. 

Forging is the process of heating metal to increase its malleability and then working it in various ways, often with a hammer and anvil. When steel is heated and worked a dark material called scale forms on the surface of the metal. Once the forging is completed, most of the scale is removed through wire brushing the surface. This gives a nice silvery finish, which is sealed with a wax coating.

Thanks very much and hope you enjoy!

Gorgeous gift to myself

Beautiful craftsmanship and very quick delivery. I would give more stars if I could.
I recently started sending more letters to my friends and this makes the experience of receiving a letter and opening it all the more personal and exciting!

beautiful and functional

I love my letter opener and use it every day. The leaf detail is lovely.

Quality Workmanship

Needed to replace a cherished lost letter opener and was very pleased to find Wicks Forge. Hard to believe there are still people who do this type of work from days gone by. The piece itself is not only beautiful but solid and works. Plus it will open packages as well. Has a convenient loop at the end for hanging if needed.
This will be passed down to the next generation in my family and I believe cherished as well.
