Allex Paper Knife
While it’s possible you don’t open paper mail every day, you probably still need to on a somewhat regular basis. After using the Allex Paper Knife, you’ll wonder why you’ve been tearing by hand for all these years. The Paper Knife is made of stainless steal, and the grip is cushioned with a soft elastomer ring. It feels great in the hand and will remain sharp for years to come. It received a Japanese Good Design Award in 1974, and its design has remained unchanged for the past 40 years.

The Allex brand is produced by Gifu Prefecture-based Hayashi Cutlery Co, a tool company that was founded almost 70 years ago. All of their products have thoughtful designs, and a startling number of them have received Japan’s famed Good Design Award. While the Allex line is regularly updated with new products, many of their offerings remain unchanged for decades.
