Call it a letter opener if you wish, but all that needs is an edge to be a real dagger. VERY NICE - good attention to detail.

Beautiful letter opener, looks to be a valued tool to someone. Did you heat treat the blade? I have made a few letter openers and have wondered if it would be a good idea to use O-1 and H.T it. Even though it is a letter opener they still require a lot of time and fines. Thanks for sharing. Dan
