The letter opener has developed in form and function over time from the medieval pen knife. The pen knife was used for many hundreds of years as a means of trimming and sharpening the points of quill pens and early pencils. As such they earned a permanent spot on desks and in offices across the developed world. As the means of sending and sealing letters evolved so did the form of the pen knife as it developed into the specifically crafted letter opening implement we know today.
