This is a beautifully made letter opener crafted from a single shell fragment picked up on a battlefield somewhere in Germany or elsewhere. It is an excellent example of trench art but was probably produced in a factory somewhere from battlefield-found material, rather than by a lowly Landser sitting in a dugout. A little over half of the 6-3/8 inch shell fragment was finely crafted into a dagger-like blade for use as a letter opener.

A VERY WELL-MADE GERMAN SHELL FRAGMENT LETTER OPENER

german shell fragment made into letter opener
A very well-made cross guard separates the letter opener blade from the handle which retains its original shell fragment appearance. The blade was nickel pl ated and still retains about 70% of its plating. An excellent original combat souvenir which we acquired in Germany.
