Classical Usage: On her trip back to St. Petersburg Anna had a rough time getting her mind off the ball, so she grabbed a book. But it wasn’t just a book, it was a book and a paper-knife. Apparently the pages of her English novel weren’t yet cut, and so she needed the handy-dandy tool, which also doubled as the classic version of a stress relief toy . . . so she forced herself to read, while her little hands twisted the smooth paper-knife.
Classically Mad Usage: Do you think if we found some copies of the reading list that needed a paper-knife to be read we could get them for a discount price? I love a deal. Plus, I need a good excuse to buy one of these gorgeous pieces.
