After digging around at the Japanese patent office, I managed to find the patent description for the 1910 Japanese patent corkscrew.
Of course, with my command of the Japanese language being nonexistent, and the patent description being in a jpg to pdf format, getting any kind of translation online is…well…not happening.
So, why not throw it out to our corkscrewing-around-bloggy-blog readers, can anyone translate the patent description that we have here?
At the very least, I would like to figure out who the patentee is. I would like to be able to name the inventor, so we can attach a name to the corkscrew.
Have at it folks!
And, thank you in advance!
