Double handled cork-puller

From the January 21, 1916 issue of the Witchita Beacon:

DOUBLE-HANDLED CORK-PULLER

Said to-Do the Work Better Than The Usual Screw

A newly designed cork puller looks like a pair of scissors which has been ruined by some thoughtless person endeavoring to use them to perform the functions of a screw driver. It has the usual pair of handle loops but the points are bent outward.

Cork Extractor Like a Pair of Scissors.

When the handles are parted these two points are brought together and in this position thrust into the heart of the cork. The handles are then brought together and a slight pull brings out the cork. It is claimed that the cork is never crushed as with the old-fashioned corkscrew.
