Rocket Boys

There is a corkscrew that I have long wanted to acquire. It isn’t some rare American patent, but I was surprised Mark (who works for NASA) wasn’t in competition for this one.

The only one I have seen in person, was during the CCCC/ICCA meetings. And, I placed a bid, but watched it go far and beyond what I was willing to pay. Well, as luck would have it, a similar corkscrew was listed last week, and ended today. There was a reserve set, and the seller was kind enough to let me in on how much it was. I placed a snipe, and hoped for the best.

A fantastic corkscrew to add to the collection, this is the Monopol Rocket corkscrew. THere are two versions, one with an injection needle, the other with a corkscrew mechanism. And, this one has the corkscrew. Surely one that my rocket scientist friends will enjoy trying out!
