Personalized Letter Opener - Reverse Curl
These elegant letter openers are hand forged and are detailed with a reverse curl on the handle.
Each letter opener is finished in a combination of linseed oil, beeswax, and turpentine, which leaves a smooth dark finish on the piece.
These are small letter openers as they measure 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.
They can be personalized with a set of initials, a name, or a short message up to 10 letters. If you select the personalized option, please enter the personalization info in the notes section when checking out.
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!
Nice quality product and fast shipping. Made a great gift
My husband is really picky, and it's hard to find a gift he won't return. That's why I was so surprised when I hit the nail on the head with this letter opener! He had been wanting a letter opener for a while, and he loved the authentic craftsmanship from New England, where he's from. It works great, and family and friends are interested in getting their own now. Thank you!
My 19 yo son mutilates letters when he opens them. Now he loves his forged and initialed letter opener, and no more mutilated mail.
Great quality and workmanship!
This is the 2nd piece of raw metal art I have purchased from Wicks Forge. The quality and workmanship is excellent.
The letter opener is very nice quality, as are the other products on this site. I really appreciate having hand made items, and have also gotten some additional ones as gifts.
