    That reminds me of the knife batarang I have.

    I don't know where it's at right now, but it's this same model. It's very sharp, in fact, I would say it's one of the sharpest knives I have.

    I knew it wasn't a letter opener.

    I plan on using mine to shave my feet. I have Hobbit feet.

    Interestingly enough, my batarang was cheaper than that letter opener.

    When given the choice between an office supply and a knife, I always pick the knife.

    It's basically the same thing. You can open a letter with your fingers. It's quite possible. I do it all the time.

    Shocking, I know.

    I just put together that batarang is Bat + Boomerang. Thought it was some Chinese term for double edged sword or something.

    They're the same thing only if you're Izola Curry.

    Letter openers are more for people who need to open hundreds of letters each day.
