BLACK PLATED STEEL.
DIMENSIONS : 18 CM LONG

“Cut in half. Is there a singular form of the word “scissors?” Because if there was, this letter opener would benefit from the distinction. Thoroughly modern by being so old school, it looks like something a seamstress would have used back in the 60s. It would make a fab gift for a stylish friend or co-worker, and we all know we should start thinking of the holidays now. In black plated steel, it’s the kind of objet you want hanging around your desk, for that added element of clever styling and prompting less visionary onlookers to wonder if you broke an old pair of scissors yet seem unwilling to toss the remaining branch. (And who knew half of a pair was called a “branch?”) Get it from ATYPYK, who live up to their name by bring you only the most atypical offerings.”
“I meant to post this ages ago when a friend pointed them out to me, but somehow it slipped my mind. I love both of these items from Atypyk: Salad Wrenches and Scissor Paper Knife. Both manage to be playful and funny while still being elegant objects. Bravo to ATYPYK for making products that manage to balance between the two!”
