A couple new ebay buys. The first is a massive tusk handled corkscrew with Sterling endcap. The other is a nice Syroco dog head corkscrew; who can resist adding another one to their collection? I knew that the tusk corkscrew was massive because the ebay listing showed it next to a soda can, but its hard to picture quite how large this corkscrew is. See the 2nd picture next to some other corkscrews for comparison. It's very heavy as well, weighing in at just over a pound. If only it was rhino horn, but I suspect that it's a buffalo horn. If you think I'm wrong then let me know in the comments. Either way, they're both welcome additions to the collection.
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.
