I got this letter opener a few months ago. Works well in its primary capacity, but I think this image is the best use of this little sword so far. I actually saw it used on some other website, which I take as the highest form of flattery. The Bible in the image is my trusted Nova Vulgata, a Vatican edition from the early 1960s. The book is opened at the famous Non nobis, Domine, non nobis line.

fabulous! I have an old rapier style letter opener that’s about 150 years old, works a treat.
And it’s not even a templar sword. It’s the free-mason version of a templar sword. It’s sad guys you didn’t do some research before comercializing that artefact.

Brother Guy, there is no need to research this. Of course, this letter opener is not supposed to be a replica of any historic Templar weapon. However, tactful use of Templar symbols in a finely crafted souvenir will always draw my attention.
