Navajo silver letter opener
A very heavy, layered silver letter opener. Verbal only but this was said to have been custom made for Tobe Turpen in Gallup. This is not cast, the jeweler used four layers of silver sheet to form the handle and then shaped the blade from the center two of the layers. Then stamped the handle on both sides. The whole piece measures 8 7/8″ long, the blade is 4 7/8″ long, the handle is 1/2″ wide and 5/16″ across the layers.
