Not a letter opener. It's not used for cutting. The edges are all fairly blunt.

Sorry, I missed Andy M's question on the last page. No. It's not really a kitchen implement, but it serves the same purpose as a fairly common one.

Clue: It--and more specifically its significantly larger "partner"--are associated with one particular Asian culture.
