Letter Openers a Great Stocking Stuffer
These hand forged wrought iron letter openers with or without a case ( Upland Custom Leather) have been a big hit this year. The wrought iron is from the bars of a jail built in Petersburg, Virginia in 1854. The iron was made in Richmond late 1853/early 1854. Since forged by hand each letter opener is slightly different. Once filed and sanded, they are etched in ferric chloride. Great for opening Christmas presents and unfortunately even better for opening post-Christmas bills.
