Will & Finck Corkscrew

So, I was minding my business, doing some random search, when I found this Will & Finck corkscrew online. I waited till a decent hour, as the piece is in California, then I called. I talked to the guy for 15 minutes or so, to attempt to negotiate a price. He explained that he added it to his website (which has items for sale) but he wasn’t ready to sell it yet. I made an offer anyway, and apparently it wasn’t enough. He also mentioned he has had two other calls thus far. I am sure more have come in since we talked this morning, but I wonder how much he expects for it. An awesome piece, despite the crack in the handle. Anyone that wants to give it a shot, and offer more than I would, knock yourselves out!
