"I’ll write to you. A super-long letter, like in an old-fashioned novel." — Haruki Murakami, After Dark
In today’s fast-paced digital world, where communicating with a loved one is as simple as firing off a quick text, and professional acquaintances can be reached by email or Slack, there is still something truly special about receiving a hand-written letter by post. The rarity of it is precisely what makes it so nostalgic - when you exchange letters, you’re exchanging a physical artefact that symbolises a connection between you and a friend.
On September 1st, the world is cordially invited to celebrate World Letter Writing Day, dedicated to the art of letter writing and the joy it brings to both sender and recipient. The act of sitting down to compose a heartfelt letter has become a lost art, but there are few things more charming than taking the time and effort to send a personal message in a traditional way. We wanted to celebrate the tradition of putting pen to paper, so we put it to the master craftsmen in our London workshop - what can be created, using traditional techniques, that could enhance the letter-opening experience.
Our exquisite range of letter openers provides the answer. Our Scribe collection features meticulously crafted letter knives made from sterling silver, combining modern technology with the traditional expertise of our craftsmen to produce three distinct designs, each adding a touch of distinction to any desk, with complex forms that are a testament to our commitment to pushing boundaries of design to create pieces that are truly one-of-a-kind.
Our elegant and sculptural letter openers are more than just functional tools; they’re works of art, designed to elevate the act of opening correspondence. To ensure the highest quality and authenticity, each letter opener in our Scribe collection bears the hallmark of the London Assay Office. This prestigious mark guarantees that your new letter-opener meets the rigorous standards of purity and craftsmanship established by the renowned institution.
If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a loved one in your life, this might be the perfect fit - and to make sure it’s an extra special present, every one of our letter openers is presented in a beautiful gift box, adding an extra layer of sophistication to your gesture. We’ll leave it up to you whether you decide to seal it with a loving kiss.
Join us in celebrating World Letter Writing Day by embracing the art of best wishes by post - preserving this beautiful tradition with a truly exceptional gift for someone you cherish.
