|This is a stunningly beautiful handcrafted letter opener. The handle is shimmering Japanese camphor chosen for its gorgeous luster. It features a Celtic knot of pine centered in the camphor. The marriage of these beautiful woods with the 24k gold plate setting featuring sculptured Celtic knots creates a statement piece suitable for the most tasteful desk. The setting is treated with an epoxy coating to keep it looking great for years. Likewise, the wood received 9 layers of durable cyanoacrylate buffed and polished to a high gloss, which accentuates the flame of the camphor. The wood was crafted by hand. The handle started as a single piece of camphor. Each knot ring was added in an 4-day process, then the piece was turned by hand on a lathe and sanded up to 10k grit for maximum shimmer and smoothness. It then received a thin coat of 100% pure tung oil to draw in the light visible in the shimmer. The outer coating application was done in another overnight process before buffing, polishing and mounting in the setting. Add this beauty to your cart as the perfect gift or as a treat for yourself ;-D Name: East Meets West Production #363 Materials: Japanese camphor, pine, sculpted gold setting Artisan: Bryce Piper Available at Hope And Grace Pens on Etsy!
