Then again, I use a razor sharp V42 dagger to open the occasional letter. The difference blurs.

p.s. - The USA and Canada used the letter mark 'STERLING', rather than a proof mark. So did the Irish! Bit closer to the UK again...


Hi Wayne,

yes, I use a miniature gunong to open letters because it's much sharper as a letter opener so I agree, the difference blurs.

Since I don't have it in hands yet I don't know if it is sharpened.
