Ebony Wood Letter Opener

Ebony Wood Letter Opener


Regular price $28.00 Sale

These letter openers are based on a bamboo tool that the designers at WMS & Co saw in Kyoto.  Quite taken with its pleasing line and the way it sits in the hand, the designers had it copied in ebony wood. Hand crafted in Bali; small markings showing the hand of the artisan are considered part of the charm and character of the piece. 6.25" hand-carved ebony wood. 

WMS & Co is the passion project of a team of design consultants who have spent the last two decades working for Tiffany and Co, West Elm, David Yurman, Jack Spade and The Drawing Center, among others. They make exquisitely practical tools or more specifically turn banal objects or office necessities into exquisite objects. Jotting a note, stamping a logo, placing a bookmark, handing someone a business card, each moment  suddenly holds real weight. Many of their designs have a slight gilding, all of them are of a quality we have rarely encountered before.
