Here is a very interesting and rare collectible- antique hand-made envelope opener.
The knife part is made out of steel adorned with hammered brass. The handle part is carved out of wood and the tip of it adorned with the hammered brass.
The envelope opener knife measures:
7 1/8” long
7/8” wide the Handle- 3/8” deep
The knife part length- 4”
Weight- 1 1/2"oz.
There is a tiny chip on the wood part of the handle (please look the last photo).
The hammered part patterns and a rather primitive carving of the wood part of the opener as well as the patina of the wood suggests that it might have been made by indigenous inhabitants more than a hundred years ago.
A real find for collectors!
