To the Letter - part III

English Arts & Crafts Letterknife with Folded and Riveted Handle (LEO Design)

For several days, we will be sharing some of our newly-acquired letterknives—some antique, some contemporary. Please check our website—under "Desk Accessories"—to see the full collection.

This understated beauty is perfect in its modest dimensions. Brass sheeting is cut, folded and riveted before being sharpened and polished. It's a bit of functional English Arts & Crafts simplicity—handsome and useful. Please click on the photo above to learn more about it.

More newly-acquired letterknives tomorrow.
