DESCRIPTION

Cyklop Bar Screw--Mint!

Offered is this Cyklop bar corkscrew.  It was first registered and manufactured in Germany by Gerhard Frings of Cologne, Germany.  The D.R.G.M. registration dates to September 30, 1925.  This example being offered is of more modern construction, but is faithful to the original Cyklop in design and operation.  Lest you think this newer version is just a cheap knock-off of the 1925 bar corkscrew, please consider this–these Cyklop “uncorking machines” (as they are now referred to), are currently being sold in wine stores and barware websites as professional and luxury barware with price tags ranging from $350 (used) to $928 for a new one.  And, yes, these fine uncorking machines are still being made in Steinbach-Hallenberg, Thuringier, Germany, a fact confirmed by Mr. Bar Screw himself.

 

Certainly, the longevity, popularity and demand for these Cyklop bar corkscrews is due to one basic reason–they work!    This example being offered is brand-spanking new, and has only been out of the box to examine it for this listing.  In looking it over carefully, the only marking appears to be “CYKLOP” on each side of the casing.

 
 The original sheet with “Instructions for Use” and the “Parts List for Cyklop Uncorking Machines” is included.  Also, it will be shipped in the original box as shown in the photos–note, however, there are no markings on the box.

See photos and Peters, “German Corkscrew Registrations”, page 56.
