Solingen, Germany, March 14, 1903 - Nath. Ermertz has landed a German Registered Design for his fish corkscrew. Like the waiter's friend patented by Wienke in 1882, this design is a pump lever type cork remover with the added feature of a wire breaker cut into the neckstand.
The corkscrew will make the perfect gift for the fisherman who wants to celebrate his catch by popping a cork on a bottle of Champagne or extracting the cork from a fine wine.
