Wicks Forge

Personalized Letter Opener - Spiral Scroll

| /

These funky letter openers are hand forged and are detailed with a spiral 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.

NOTE: Wicks Forge is moving! We won't be offering personalizations during this transition period. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.

The finish is a little rough, moreso than I would like. The blade isn't sharp enough.

Handcrafted letter opener

Beautiful handcrafted letter opener! Just what I wanted as a gift for my son and I got it personalized too. Would recommend this site and ordered some beautiful candy canes for Christmas decor.

Reviving an old tradition

Letter openers were so common, then they fell out of favor. I am so excited to renew that tradition - a WONDERFUL instrument to handle and use. Balanced, functional, fabulous - thinking of getting personalized stationary and writing again!

It’s gorgeous!

Beautiful functional piece. Wish it was a little thinner and sharper. Doesn’t make a clean cut.
