B&T Industries L.L.C. is proud to introduce a letter opener for our customers that want to have a serious desk top accouterment with purpose and function.
We machined the Handle and Pommel from 300 series Stainless Steel then tumbled to compliment the blade. The blade, made by Spartan Blades http://spartanbladesusa.com, is machined from 440C Stainless Steel given a Rockwell Hardness of C 58-59 with a Cyro treatment followed by Alumina then Ceramic Blast and finally a PVD Chromium coating. The two Buna o-rings prevent rattling when sheathed for a stealthy presentation. The double ground edges along the length of the blade are not sharp but the point is.
The protective Sheath is machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, Mil Spec hard anodized with Stainless Steel components, the design and size is borrowed from the legs found on the Atlas 5H bipods. A portion of the hexagon profile bar stock, which is used for Atlas bipod legs, is retained to help prevent rolling off your desk top
The overall length of the sheathed B&T Letter Opener is approximately 9.5” long; the Letter Opener component is 9.125” long having a blade length of 5”, .500 width and thickness of .190 and weighs 10 ounces approximately. It is shipped in a black 1000 denier Cordura pouch (made by CSM Gear http://www.csmgear.com). These are 100% made in America in limited numbers.
