Perfection

There is nothing that Craighill builds that is NOT....PERFECT.

ADD this to their list.

I have TWO of these.....because....

I'm a designer with two studios.....and I use these all the time.

First.

The design..itself...it beautiful......it is SLEEK in your hand....designed to fit comfortably in your PALM.....and it WORKS.

the knife is SHARP....cuts thru cardboard...paper....like BUTTER....as i try to use these in lieu of scissors...just cuz.

I grab this all day long to assist in my design studios...creating things outta thin air....and used with materials that...at times...will not budge with a simple exacto knife blade...but...VOILA...WILL be cut with this beautiful blade.

It is both lovely and functioning.....oh...and SUBSTANIAL.....SO.......what better tool to use on a daily basic.

If you CRAVE .......the unusual....the beautiful..... the ability to SURROUND oneself with ORDER and DESIGN.....and...a fantastic TOOL AT HAND.......buy this people.

You will not be disappointed.

NOT recommended for opening anything other than mail. Exceptional art/desk piece.

Disclaimer - I own several Craighill products and love the majority of them (including the all puzzles, 3 types of trays, and several of the "desk" products). This review is for the desk knife in brass only (for which I've also purchased the plinth also).

I have owned this knife for close to 3 years now, and got my utility out of it as a decorative piece, but also strictly opening up letters a plethora of amazon boxes that arrive every single day. Given the price standpoint, I would have expected this knife to last me a lifetime. However, this was not the case, when I opened up my latest package, while applying excessive force at an awkward angle. The picture sums it all up - while the edge is not necessarily too sharp, the tip has bent completely after opening up a package that was sealed with fiberglass tape. Obviously YMMV here with your usage, but I was disappointed to have this happen, especially since all of the other products I've owned were high quality and reliable until this day.
