With a blurry photo, not knowing that if the worm was sharp or not, nor who the hell KLONE was, I took a chance and bought the corkscrew.
After doing a little online hunt, and going through each page of Ferd’s book, I managed to find the corkscrew. It is August Holland-Cunz 1932 German registration # 1216884. And, it isn’t marked KLONE, it is marked KRONE.
At least that is what Ferd’s book says, it is entirely possible that the corkscrew manufacturers made a typo
Well, the corkscrew arrived today, and it does indeed have a sharp helix, it is indeed marked DRGM
and KRONE (spelled correctly) but hard to read from the finish loss
, and it is pretty cool little corkscrew.
A nice addition to the growing German corkscrew collection.
Note to self: spend more time reading Ferd’s books!!!
