Handled letter openers

Envelope openers with handles look like knives. The blade is sharp enough to cut through paper. Some are constructed with the same material from handle to blade, although most have a metal blade and a handle made of different material. There are two other styles of handled openers. Concealed-blade openers are usually round with a blade tucked inside so fingers won’t get sliced when opening mailing supplies. Retractable openers work like switchblades where the blade is inside until a button is pressed and it pops out. These also help protect fingers from sharp edges. Handled openers can cut through any style of envelopes, including custom envelopes that are not traditional sizes.

Handled mail opener materials

The handles on these products come in a variety of materials. Wood, marble, and plastic may be carved into fun shapes and designs that make a unique object. Leather-handle openers are soft on the hands. Metal and glass products have a modern look. These decorative handles turn the opener into pieces of useful art.

Handled letter opener extra features

Handle-style openers sometimes have extra features that add to use or help the environment. Extra features include:

  • Antimicrobial coating to prevent spread of germs
  • Made from recycled material to keep material out of landfills
  • Built-in magnifying glass to read small writing after opening the mail
  • Integrated pens to fill in forms or answer letters after opening the envelope

Electric envelope openers

Electric mail openers are designed to open many envelopes quickly and are useful for offices with lots of mail. Some open several envelopes at once. Most are automatic, letting users place an envelope in the slot to turn the machine on. It then grabs the business envelope and cuts it open. Enclosed blades keep fingers safe from cuts. Units either have a slot at the top or side of the machine and can cut through thick envelopes and sticky mailing labels.
