The stylish Kent gold letter opener is a handy addition to any household or office. This letter opener will effortlessly slice open all your envelopes with ease, leaving lovely smooth paper edges.
This letter opener is made from Australian red cedar. Australian red cedar is possibly Australia's most celebrated native timber with its very fine grain in reddish brown and fine dark brown striations along the grain. In the 19th century red cedar dominated the interiors of colonial Australia and was used extravagantly for fine furniture and joinery in places such as Government House and Sydney Town Hall. Unfortunately many of the tall strands of red cedar were decimated on the NSW coast during the first 100 years of colonisation. In 1795 it became Australia’s first export as it was not economically sensible to send ships back on a six month voyage with an empty hold. Red cedar is still highly sought after and readily available in North Queensland. Each red cedar letter opener is handcrafted by an artisan who hand turns each one on a lathe in North Brisbane.
For all our timber letter openers we use a meticulous 10 step sanding and polishing process and with 10 coats of CA we highlight the simple, innate beauty of the timber. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each one we create is one of a kind. The dagger style Kent letter opener features quality gold fittings and comes standard in a protective sleeve. You can add a quality black gift box below.
