It is always nice to have friends who have done plenty of research. The girl on the side of the corkscrew has turned up on another corkscrew, and a couple of pocket knives. Check Don’s site here http://www.bullworks.net/Schutzenliesl/ .
At last year’s JFO convention I saw DB’s corkscrew–Don won some award for best display–and, I had forgotten about it over the passing months. Then, when TC presented this silver(?) overlay corkscrew, I recognized the girl. But, wasn’t sure…was it the same one? After exchanging emails with Don, it definitely is.
Tommy seemed to be pleased with the trade–and now he can have a syroco waiter clock to time the cooking of his ross pig pork butt!
And, I…I have a lovely silver corkscrew which will be used later this evening.
Tommy has started a blog. He kind of new to the game, but he is quickly amassing a nice collection. http://syrocokid.spaces.live.com/
