Letter Openers

What do you use to open your mail art? A 19th century engraved letter opener with a carved inlaid alabaster handle? A dull table knife? An overly excited yet always regretful rip with your hands? Your teeth? Join this group and show IUOMA what you use. (Please join if you use your teeth. I couldn't even find a picture of someone doing that on the internet. I may have subconsciously started this group just because I want to see that.)

Interesting you should share your thrift store purchases, Greg. When I thought about a topic for a group my other consideration was one focused on thrift store purchased mail art supplies. Your comment ticks both the letter opener and thrift store topic boxes.

My main tools for opening envelopes. I found theses at Goodwill.

I like how geometric that one is, Mim.
