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 spalted silky oak timber. Spalting is a valued wood colouration process caused naturally by fungi. Spalting increases the contrasts of light and dark colours in the timber and makes brown and black lines running through the wood appear. This timber was grown on a beautiful block of land in Grafton owned by my father and fell due to natural causes and lay undisturbed in its bushland habitat enough years for the spalting process to begin. It was then carried on the shoulders of a man in a flannelette shirt, strapped onto the roof of a Toyota Landcruiser, travelled to sunny Queensland where is has been sawn into pens, pencils, letter opener and ice cream scoop blanks. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each Tassie oak letter opener we create is one of a kind. Each spalted silky oak 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.
