PATENT POWER CORKSCREW

patentpowerscrew

This is the most powerful Screw ever invented. Very strong and durable, and we guarantee it will pour a larger cork with less effort than the most expensive English lever corkscrew in the market.  It requires but one motion, that is, simply turning to the right, and after the screw has entered the cork the cap strikes and acts like a jack screw in drawing the cork, so that no exertion is required.  Elegantly finished in nickle plated, with fine hard wood handle
