Intelligent living things are consistently won over by labor-saving devices, yet items like this one seem to have gone out of fashion. The Prisme Letter Opener is a contemporary reinvention of the old staple utensil that went widely used in households and offices just a generation ago.

Perhaps it's the decline in posted mail with the increase in email messaging; regardless, the implement needed revamping in order to attract modern users. Julian Pröll made this blunt blade a hot commodity in a limited edition of 15, displaying a beautiful sculptural design that's manufactured in carbon fiber material to a form that's optimally efficient.

One end of the Prisme Letter Opener is intended for gripping, while the other sharp point narrows to a precise 15%, making envelope opening a quick and clean task. Stats for Top-Quality Low-Tech Implements Trending: Older & Buzzing
