LETTER OPENER by MERCURY BUREAU
The letter opener is a sand-cast and hand-polished manganese bronze—originating from a hand-carved wood form. This everyday object reflects the designer, Shane Krepakevich's, pursuit of intuitive form and natural materials to enhance the daily activities of life.

Sand-cast and hand-polished manganese bronze. Due to the nature of sand-casting, pitting and other textural irregularities will vary from piece to piece.
The bronze of the Letter Opener is unfinished. It will naturally patina over time, becoming darker. It will also patina to a greater degree in areas that have been touched. You can choose to keep this patina or restore the bronze to its original finish by using a metal polishing compound suited for bronze, available at most local hardware stores, and apply as directed.
