Also known as a paper knife, the letter opener is one of those objects that can add a decorative touch to a collection of desk accessories while at the same time prevent those painful paper cuts we incur when opening sealed envelopes with our fingertips.


The letter opener has been designed in many different ways, from ornate and bejeweled paper knives fabricated to resemble swords, to "Plain Jane", molded plastic razor type openers that are often given away as ad-specialty items.
A mechanical envelope slicer was developed over 50 years ago by an office equipment company who is still in business today, and it is a rugged, purely functional hand operated machine. Somewhere in between the precious gem encrusted museum quality desk ornament and the molded plastic paper slicer is the simple metal blade letter opener that can be fashioned and embellished using jewelry findings and decorative stampings.
