Elegant metal letter opener with a Hunminjeongeum design in the center of the handle area laid out in mother of pearl. A handmade knot strand or tassel (of which the design and color may vary according to product) is attached. Great little addition to your study or to give as an elegant gift.
Hunminjeongeum (lit. The Correct/Proper Sounds for the Instruction of the People) is a document describing an entirely new and native script for the Korean language. The script was initially named after the publication, but later came to be known as Hangeul. It was created so that the common people illiterate in Hanja (or Chinese characters) could accurately and easily read and write the Korean language. It was announced in Volume 102 of the Annals of King Sejong, and its formal supposed publication date, October 9, 1446, is now Hangeul Day in South Korea.
