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!

Very nice piece

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

Deborah Rahalski
Stunning craftsmanship

This piece is well made, beautifully crafted and solid. The weight is nicely balanced and the edges are well honed. I'd love to have a slipcover to protect it.

This letter opener is beautifully made. I thought the personalization would take extra time, but it didn’t; the item shipped very quickly after I ordered it, with the personalized changes already done. I ordered this as a gift, and the recipient loves and uses it every day. Thank you!
