I like the idea of this letter opener/ruler combo. Unfortunately, when I first received it, the edges were square with sharp corners, which ended up tearing a narrow strip of paper out of the envelope and leaving a mess on my desktop.
I took it to my workbench and filed the edges as if I was sharpening a cutting tool. I didn't make it overly sharp, just enough to smooth out the edges, and it works much better now. So, if you're not inclined to do some work on it, this letter opener probably isn't for you.
Love my letter opener
I use this everyday when I check the mail and it works great! My friends always ask where it came from. I just wish that Izola would not produce their products in China. The "break the rules" and "follow the rules" quotes on each side make me happy
Nice brass color. Length makes it easy to handle. Sharp enough to cut through packing tape but not so sharp that you cut yourself.
