Bar Bar Bar

Madrid, Spain - In January 1977, D. Enrique Stuyck Roma and D. Francisco Ortiz Valderrama patented their "Sacacorchos Descapsulador Perfeccionado." The example pictured here is marked JAPAN STAINLESS STEEL. It comes in a leather tube. One end pulls off to reveal a combination cap lifter and can piercer. On the other end is a worm which folds into position with the bar serving as the handle.


This Bar Bar is from the collection of Mike Sharp. The packaging is from Star Case Co., Castleton Street, Thornwood, New York.
