The folks at J.L. Lawson are known for making some pretty swanky office products, but we’re pretty sure it doesn’t get much swankier than a Brass Letter Opener with a walnut-carved resting place. Now grant it, at the rate the USPS is going, you may not have the experience of knowing what it feels like to open an actual letter much longer, but until they bar the doors, this would be a great addition to help with envelope shredding chores.
The opener measures 1/2-inch square and runs about 4 1/4 inches long, which means that you may want to keep it away from the kids. And even if you don’t end up using it much, it makes for great office decor.
