Portland based artist and designer Stephan Alexandr likes to carve things and in this digital age, he still likes to receive hand written mail. His latest creations kill two birds with one stone (figuratively speaking...no birds were harmed in this process). The Fangblade letter opener is hand-carved out of real alligator jawbones, from blade to handle. The handles feature two small fangs at either end that were left unextracted by the designer and come in a variety of finishes. The sharp alligator-bone blades come in natural, gold, and silver, and feature Stephan Alexandr logo near the handle.
