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.)

You're quite right; there are small workshops in Moscow that sharpen knives and scissors, and they are usually run by Armenians. I sharpen my scissors there, including some very old ones, from the end of the 19th century. Old scissors are high quality steel, that's the point.
Your scissors still look very sharp, Ilya. Do you sharpen them, now and then?
@Mark Johnson I know, right? I can't believe it still works. I think after all these years I should treat myself to a new one.
I use palette knives.
