reunited and it feels so good…

Not too long ago, I picked up a Holborn Lever without the corkscrew. It arrived a while back, and since I bought it, I have been trying to find an appropriate screw to go with the lever.

Today a deal was struck, and a Holborn corkscrew is headed to the island.

Soon enough it will be reunited with the Holborn lever.

Now I am pretty doubtful that they actually were an original pairing, still it is nice to have a set.

Speaking of Holborn lever corkscrews, in a recent search I found this in an 1899 issue of the Brooklyn Eagle
