501 Deluxe Letter Opener made from Rosewood

501 Deluxe Letter Opener made from Rosewood
£18.00 1 Available
Love this


This letter opener is handmade in the UK from Rosewood, a rich and elegant wood, and after turning is sanded and polished to a fine finish as befits such a beautiful wood.
The metal blade is then screwed into the barrel and is of high quality gold plate.
The finished stylish item is presented in a Chocolate Brown gift box and would be an ideal gift for anyone. A truly useful and beautiful item.


I was inspired by my wife to make a letter opener because of the difficulty sometimes in opening letters with her fingers. I made one for her as a surprise and it was a great success, she loved it. I decided to make more to sell at the Arts and Crafts markets which I attend. They proved to be very popular.
