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.

Thanks very much and hope you enjoy!

Excellent Craftsmanship

Ordered a new letter opener to replace one that lasted 20 yrs. This one will last forever. My children’s children’s children will still be using this one. Didn’t really know what to expect but it wasn’t this. I love this opener. Definitely can tell it’s hand made and that’s what makes this a great piece of art. It’s not about whether it opens a letter, anything can do that. This is a small trivial item and yet represents so much. Handmade in America!! True craftsmanship. I’m glad I found your shop!
