When I acquired the Sterling silver pistol on the left in 2018, it made my Best Six for the year and I didn't think that I would ever part ways with it. But since I acquired the virtually identical one on the right, the one from 2018 will be going up for sale. Both pistols are in immaculate condition and were made by the same maker, but there are some slight variations; The scrollwork on the silver scales is slightly different and one has a round barrel while the other has an octagonal barrel.
I haven't acquired much lately, but what I lack in quantity, I make up for in quality. From left to right; elephant ivory mechanical with Sterling end caps, walrus tusk with Henshall button, large Walker boars tusk with carved stag and gold end caps, Walker stag horn corkscrew with mother of pearl end cap.
I'm constantly adding new corkscrews to my collection. Any new finds as well as articles which may be of interest to corkscrew collectors will be posted here.
