Well, it is pretty much halfway through the corkscrew fiscal year, and with still another 6 months of hunting, I figured why not put together a “best 6 so far.”
And, with the Brimfield coming up (in July), the ICCA and CCCC AGM’s coming up in August, to be followed by yet another Brimfield, and of course the constant search, these are bound to change.
Still, why not?
At this point in the year, the best 6 found (acquired) thus far would be the Folding Hicks and Reynolds, Trunk Patent, Maud’s Patent, Steel Alligator, Paradise/Mumble Peg, and at this point I am thinking the early Murphy with blade is an appropriate choice. When we did our display of Murphy corkscrews in Boston a few years ago, none of us had this exact version).
Of course, we are only halfway through, who knows what will turn up next!
