Frary Arrival

As mentioned recently, I picked up an oblong handle Frary corkscrew with the Henshall-type button.  This one has a little plus sign underneath that serves as a cork grabber.

And, given I have several of these in different sizes, with different worms, I had hoped that it would be a variant.

It arrived the other day, and the size of the handle, shank, and button, pretty much look the same; not that I pulled out my micrometer to check the exact measurements.

Okay, I haven’t used a micrometer since my days as a machinist, but…

..they look to be the same, until you compare the worms.

Both are complete length, with no breakage or damage to either, but clearly one is longer than the other.

So, technically not a new variation for the collection, but pretty cool nonetheless.

If you have a Frary corkscrew with which you would like to part,

feel free to drop me a line.  I will happily add it to the collection!

On another note, the lovely personal personal trainer and I are off on a road-tripping adventure for a few days.  If any corkscrews are discovered, I will provide updates here!

Stay Tuned!
