Vintage Brass Chinnock Style Corkscrew

Item Number: KTE212115
Price: $19.99

Charles Chinnock created the first "self-pulling" corkscrew in 1862. The idea is elegantly simple in that a cylindrical frame is attached to the corkscrew so that as the corkscrew is continually turned, it pulls the cork out of the bottle's neck. Nearly all modern corkscrews follow this same basic design.

This corkscrew is cast in brass and is quite heavy for its size. There are signs it has been used to open a great many bottles of wine, yet it is sturdy and is not ready to retire just yet. It still has many many years of faithful service to offer, which is more than I can say about that battery powered corkscrew I got for Christmas 2 years ago. Clearly, modern is not always better.
