I have a beautiful collection of Danish furniture in my office mixed with Italian accessories Ã¡ la Alessi, and this just "crossed the T" on my desk. I love the design and it is just the right size for keeping on a desk. I recommend the Stila letter opener with it - it looks great when you put it in and mix it with black pens.

The Trina is a very unique and nice looking pencil holder but the finish of the aluminum leaves so much to be desired. As a cyclist, I'll compare the finish to the lowest of the cheapest aluminum bicycle component. It has a "pot metal" look and feel to it, rather than a refined anodized or polished finish. I expected this to be a finish quality similar to a Nambe piece, which I have and is excellent.
I would NOT recommend this AT THIS PRICE. Maybe at a lower price I would be expecting a finish like this but at this price, they missed the quality mark by a mile.
