First Forged Letter Opener

Made from… some random hunk of steel the instructor gave me. Some cracking in and near the twist, but several people had that problem so we were told it was probably a flaw in the billet.

I cheated a bit in forming the blade. I drew it out too far so I had to cut off some of the tip.
