    Brazilian Rosewood Letter Opener

    I actually made two of these for the customer. But here is a picture of one of them. The handle is Brazilian Rosewood with a CA finish & they were assembled with polished Solid Brass components.

    Those envelopes are just going to jump up, so they can be opened by such wonderful equipment.

    They beat my fingernail file, pencil, screwdriver, finger, or whatever else is handy by about ten-thousand percent.

    Enjoy,
