why this product

This polished stainless steel letter opener with buffalo horn handle transforms the chore of sorting through mail into a welcome ritual. The blade and handle are fitted with polished nickel bolsters, brass linings and brass pins. Each handle is hand-shaped, and since it is made of true horn, no two are alike—the handles will vary from deep brown tones to slight accents of honey and amber. Arriving in a satin-lined navy presentation box, the letter opener makes a ready gift. 

use & care

Always remember to slice open the edge of a letter with the blade of the opener pointing away from you. The letter opener requires no special care, simply keep it clean and dry. To prevent damage, use the letter opener only for the intended purpose—this fine tool is not a lever, pry bar, hammer, chisel or wedge.
