I just finished adding a new section to the website which features corkscrews owned by historical figures. The page can be found Here and includes corkscrews such as this stag horn corkscrew which was owned by Adolf Hitler.
I have been buying several corkscrews lately which ultimately leads to the unintended "bycatch" as I like to call it. You can read more about the interesting non-corkscrew finds I have come across Here.
Just picked up this unusual bloodletting fleam with 7 tools including a corkscrew. All of the tools fit perfectly and it seems to be original, but why would anyone want a corkscrew to accompany such gruesome tools?
I just got this nice little smoker's tool corkscrew. It has mother of pearl scales and is used for opening cigar boxes among other things.
I already had one of these with ebony scales. The ebony version is much larger. Both are marked D.R.G.M. on the hammer which means that it is a German patent. The mother of pearl version is marked No 42057 whereas the ebony version is not.
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.
