DESCRIPTION

 Add this unique "fence post helix"  corkscrew to your collection as an attention getting display in your wine cellar...

 ScrewCode* TTW144:"GIANT BARREL SIZE "S.D. fence post helix corkscrew". Overall size is 44" walnut stained hardwood handle (6" dia.)with 48" chrome coated helix (2.5"dia). Located in Paul Luchsinger's wine cellar is this giant "T" direct pull corkscrew created by melding together a genuine South Dakota fence post helix (S. Dakota had very few trees in the early 1900's and probably fewer today) Hence, the ranchers had to use an alternative material to create fence posts and the fence post helix was formed---barbed wires held in place by the loops to keep the cows on the ranch . Only a few remain to this day and this fence post helix was puchased on ebay and delivered by U.S. parcel post to my home wine cellar many years ago.  The large barrel shaped handle was handcrafted by a local furniture manufacturer and fitted to the helix.  As of this date it is the ONLY ONE KNOWN! It is also listed in ScrewBase as noted above. As the photo shows, it is easily disassembled for shipping and can be easily re-assembled.


*ScrewBase 12 & Corkscrew Collector 12 are available now at the website: http://corkscrewsoftware.com/ . There are over 10,000 entries in ScrewBase with many new photos, valuable info. and help for the collector. I have used ScrewBase for several years and it is very helpful in organizing your collection, establishing value for insurance and in the future, assisting in the sale of any of your corkscrews.
