Spike the Conversation

No other letter opener has as much power, class, history or authenticity as this one. Fashioned from recycled railroad spikes by Salamon Ruiz and Ivan Auiles, this piece makes a strong statement simply seated on your desk. Both the letter opener and its base, handmade from driftwood, are from materials found in Nicaragua and are one-of-a-kind.

Due to the found nature of this product, the wood bases vary in shape and color.

          Comments about Railroad Spike Letter Opener:

          My father worked at our local steel mill for over 30 years on their railroad. As soon as I saw this gift, I knew it was for him. Because he opened our gift first, he was able to use the letter opener to neatly open all of the other cards and gifts he received. He really likes it and said it is unique, which is what I was going for. He said it is perfect for his desk.

                I bought this for my husband who works for a railroad company. It looks awesome on his desk.
                It looks just as pictured and was delivered quickly. Thanks!
