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!
I purchased this piece because I was in need of a letter opener and wanted something handmade. I purchased the leaf ended piece and was not disappointed. It is very well made and fits nicely in the hand. The finish is nice and the overall shape is well balanced. It came well packaged and there was even an extra piece of cardboard to protect the blade. I would recommend this artisan and would purchase from them again.
I wanted a more unique letter opener & this fit the bill perfectly. Looks so pretty laying on my desk!
Exactly what i wanted…beautiful graceful leaf design. Excellent craftmanship!
Quick shipping in a nice, solid piece. My only complaint is that it was a gift for a friend and I shipped it directly to them, so I used the gift options to ask a note to be included. The note did not come in the packaging so they were very confused!
The letter opener is beautiful, artistic, masculine
