posticon The Letter Opener ?


on the Object list on wiki they mention a "Letter Opener" Object.....since my Scissors came with a letter opener and they match the scissors on the show then its a good chance that the letter opener that came with the scissors could be the right one and show correct. the question is.....would you all say that it's a safe bet that the letter opener is the right one ? For now I will say yes it is until we have definative proof that it is not correct.

Since we've never seen the letter opener it could look like anything but if you've got one that came as part of a set with the scissors I'd feel pretty good about it.

Re: The Letter Opener ?


which makes me wonder if those crafty sci-fi prop guys got the whole set when they were getting props ready for the show. but there is no "scissor case" listed so I wonder....... emoticon

Re: The Letter Opener ?


This, once again, this gets into the whole issue of canonicity. I don’t grant any authority to Wikipedia, but your argument based on extrapolation seems valid.

You found the exact scissors (apart from some rather incidental plating) and the scissors come with an opener. Since these are desk scissors and since all desk scissors seem to be issued that way, I have to grant canonicity to your opener—unless and until Mr. Leone proves you wrong that is. Even then, your opener is canonical up to a point, since the prop makers may not even have “cast” the opener. I suppose, to be precise, we should say that your opener is semicanonical.

Re: The Letter Opener ?


I had already started searching for the letter opener this week. As with the other unseen Objects I already acquired, I have a couple possiblilities that would satisfy my collection standards. I have no problem revising my search to something to this design.

Some of the opener styles have me seriously considering starting a letter opener collection!
