It’s Wednesday and I want….

A wooden double action corkscrew!

Yup!  A plain ole wooden double action corkscrew…  FROM THE “SCRUE CRUISE”!

Actually this piece is quite large.  It weighs in at 1 pound 13 ounces and stands 11 inches tall!  A truly fantastic work of art!

The Scrue Cruise to Alaska took place aboard the Coral Princess, August 6-13, 2005.  The cruise was organiaed by ICCA member Fred O’Leary and all corkscrew collectors were invited to join the ICCA on the trip.  Don Bull presented research on “The Perfect Extractor” as part of the Corkscrew University sessions aboard the ship.

I was barely getting started in my corkscrew collecting when this cruise took place, so unfortunately I was not able to get one of these.  BUT I sure would like to have on in the collection!  Anyone got one available for purchase?  Drop me a line at syrocokid@gmail.com!
