B&T Industries is mostly known for its Atlas Bipods and Accu-Shot monopods. But… letter openers?

Spartan Blades/Accu-Shot Letter Opener Knife

Admittedly, when we think of letter openers we picture grandpa mumbling over bills, probably using something like this:

Classic Webber letter opener

But since you’ve already seen the featured image of this Monday Night Knife Fight, you know this ain’t your average letter opener. We doubt ol’ grandpa’s letter opener was made by Spartan Blades, but the BT41 certainly was.

The handle and pommel are 300 series stainless steel, and the blade itself is “machined from 440C Stainless Steel given a Rockwell Hardness of C 58-59 with a Cyro treatment followed by Alumina then Ceramic Blast and finally a PVD Chromium coating” (We had to quote it because we don’t entirely know what it means).

In truth, it reminds us a bit of this 90’s classic:

[The Truth is Out There]

The BT41 comes with its own sheath, which absolutely can serve as a bludgeon all by itself.

The blade is extracted much the same way you adjust an Atlas Bipod.

You can actually leave it that way for a little extra length if you want.

But really, it’s probably best all the way out and ready for work for opening letters.

It’s noteworthy that the sides do not come sharpened, but the point can easily pierce just about anything. Being made by Spartan Blades, we have little doubt the sides can be razor-ready very quickly if desired.

Either way, it’s a hundred times better than some safety opener sold at Office Depot.

About the Author

Richard "Swingin' Dick" Kilgore is half of the most storied celebrity action figure team in the world (and the half that doesn't prefer BBWs). He believes in American Exceptionalism, America, holding the door for any woman (lady or whore) and the idea that you should be held accountable for what comes out of your fucking mouth. Swingin' Dick has been a warrior gyrovague for many years now and is, apparently, impossible to kill -- he once had a complete body transplant after an IED hit the gun truck in which he was riding. True story, one of the Cav guys mailed his head and arm home. Swingin' Dick comes from a long line of soldiers and LEOs (his Great Uncle commanded an Air Cav battalion in Vietnam and his many times removed great grandfather was one of the few original Burt Mossman era Arizona Rangers). Swingin' Dick detests Joy Behar and Chris Matthews almost as much as he enjoys traveling the world to crush crime vice and evil. He believes the opportunity to lead eeeelight team of Breach Bang Clear minions is the most improbably awesome thing an action figure has ever done and he's immensely proud of his perfect hair. Loyalty and respect should start from the top down.
