OK, it was a bit of cheap molded plastic swag from work, so I shouldn't be all that surprised. But it was pretty, and functional, and had a magnifying lens built into the handle end. Poor letter-opener. It served me well, helping to open not just letters, but bubble-envelope packages, shrinkwrapped DVDs, and so on.
Rest in pieces, letter opener.
ETA: Yes, I know that I am unreasonably attached to my Stuff. Not all of it, just the cool, quirky, silly Stuff. Stuff, after all, is awesome.
