Allex Paper Knife
The satisfaction of opening a letter (even if it’s a bill, it still feels good). This award winning design by the Japanese company, Allex, has been in production since 1975. The letter opener is constructed from stainless steel and the handle is lined with a rubber ring making it durable and comfortable to use.
“I grew up playing in my Grandfather’s office, I would use his typewriter to write letters and use his stamp to seal the envelopes. He had this heavy and shiny letter opener set aside by piles of paper, I was oddly fascinated by something so simple. Whenever I use this letter opener, I think of the days he would let me mess up his work station.”
