Handcrafted Classic Sculptured Bloodwood Wooden Letter Opener with Leather Case
The pen and letter opener were hand turned on my lathe.
Bloodwood is an exotic wood that is sometimes referred to as cardinal wood, for its obvious beautiful deep rose color. With age it’s color does darken, but not significantly so it is a great wood to use in intarsia projects. The wood is very dense, with a tight fine, mostly linear grain.
Remember there is only one of this letter opener making it unique. No two pieces are the same. Each will have different grain patterns and colors. If you enjoy pens that are unique, this is a pen for you.
The letter opener is finished with multiple coats of a CA finish, which gives it a durable gloss coat that will resist oils and signs of wear.
