"The plan of this world is infinite similarity and yet infinite variety." Dinah Maria Mulock Craik

This classic, yet graceful letter opener is a proven, design very useful for a variety of desk-related functions. Use the tough blade to open cardboard, cut string, etc.

Made from 512 layers of handforged alternating hard and soft carbon steels to result in a Damascus steel whose randomly patterned blade will give you pleasure every time you look at it or use it. This steel has terrific edge-holding ability and is easy to sharpen. The handle is designed with a thicker, wider end portion to fit your hand very comfortably. Large brass rivets complete the design.

Choose your scrimshaw design from our pictures below and have us hand etch your name or initials at no extra cost!. This handy letter opener is only 7 inches in overall length. The blade is 3 1/4 inches long. A useful tool that will be an appreciated addition to your desk, and a welcome gift for any collector.

The Peach-colored Fossil Walrus Ivory (with just a hint of Dark Brown on both sides) [Knife shown in photo] is handcrafted with contrasting maroon nylon liners set between the ivory and the full tang. It is one-of-a-kind.


Below are the available colors of our fossil ivories. Our high quality fossilized ivories have been reclaimed from the ground after sharing the earth for up to 30 millennia! Even after all this time, Fossil Ivory remains warm and sensuous organic ivory; it is not petrified. It has developed its beautiful colors by taking up minerals from the earth and these colors are impossible to match in any contemporary ivories by modern processes.
