Unusual Wood Carved Paper Knife, Letter Opener Mythical Figural Primate - Ape Head
Product Description: Similar to letter openers but a bit different, paper knives were commonly used during the 19th century to slit open uncut reading material, pages of books and cutting-down, slicing loose paper sheets. This 10” long, fine, wood-carved paper knife with intricate detail is unlike most you may have seen. The 6” flat, blunt blade features an elegant, smooth surface with an outstanding handle resembling the head of a mythical primate or ape-like creature with carved fur detail and four fangs. I bet this will strike up conversation at the office!
