Product Description

"Letters are the stories of our souls." Macrina Wiederkehr

This is a superbly functional desk letter opener in the old English style with no bolsters. It has a fixed 4 1/2 inch blade, and hidden within the ivory scales is a sharp blade for strings, cardboard, etc. Both fixed and folding blades are made with tempered 4XLO904 stainless steel. And it will keep its sharp edge for a very long time. It lends an air of elegance to any desk.

Well-shaped Fossil Ivory handle (no bolsters) is really comfortable and great-looking.

Choose the type and color of Fossil ivory and it can be scrimshawed with your name or initials. Or choose the etching of your choice from those available below - Both at no extra cost! 8 inches total length. Folding Blade is 1 7/8 inch long. Comes with felt case.


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.
