The power of wind, water and time is responsible for the Vein Turquoise inlay that is painstakingly fashioned by hand into the beautiful two-sided design. Tucked inside are a duo of small stainless steel blades and pair of scissors.
Hand inlaid and crafted by local artisans working under the watchful eye of master cutler Bill Wirtel since the 1970s, this heirloom quality gem has character to spare. From arts & crafts to opening the daily mail, it will get the job done. Beautifully.
Nestled in the shadows of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, in a one hundred year-old adobe ranch house, Santa Fe Stoneworks is as New Mexico as it gets.
"My grandfather was a stone cutter from Upper Bohemia where the logo for the Stonecutters’ Guild was called a ‘wirtel.’ I proudly carry on that tradition."Bill Wirtel, Santa Fe Stoneworks
