Brass Ruler Is Classy!

This is a well-made piece. The only thing wrong is it arrived bent. I have a brass hammer and a brass plate and it is as good as new! This was the fault of the carrier, not Galen.

Such a useful item to have in your writing box with its dual use as both a ruler and letter opener.

Beautiful brass

Thank you for this little treasure. It was bought as a gift but I might have to buy one for myself. Incredible detail, even comes with its own cleaning cloth. *****
