The frequency with which we forget where we put our letter opener and ruler is greater than the frequency of actually receiving snail mail or measuring things. But Izola’s handsome ruled letter opener, made of sturdy brass-plated alloy and etched with both centimeters and inches, is making us consider taking on a pen pal. At the very least, we’re inclined to display the clever hybrid on our workspace.
I love this letter opener! I work in a law office and handle a ton of mail. This opener makes mail processing fun and efficient. It took a few tries to get a hang of the method, generally hook under the envelope edge and do one big swipe to get the job done. Small cuts makes the envelope rip in a jagged mess. The ruler looks snazzy laying on my desk, many people have commented/complemented this tool.5
I love this letter opener. It gives a classic look but a clean cut. Gives me more of a hope to get mail worth opening. But, in between mail it makes a perfect item for an accent by our typewriter.5
Perfect graduation gift for a friend from professional school! Very sleek and great feel. Wonderful tool to have in an office.4
I open a great deal of snail mail at my office, and felt I needed a nice letter opener to replace the bog-standard one I'd lost. This one fits the bill wonderfully, and is a bit of a pick-me-up when I use it.5
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.
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 happy5
Nice brass color. Length makes it easy to handle. Sharp enough to cut through packing tape but not so sharp that you cut yourself.5
