DESCRIPTION

BEST EVER U.S. SELF PULLER

American polished stainless steel self puller marked Northampton Cutlery USA Information from Bob Nugent from worker at plant - "was designed by mechanical engineer/gourmet cook Harvey Finison, the late owner of the Northampton Cutlery Co., Northampton, Massachusetts. It is believed only 50 were made before the cutlery was closed.

The handle was dropped forged from 410 stainless steel. The screw was handmade in a special jig with a Bridgeport vertical milling machine. The bell was made on two lathes and a Bridgeport machine involving about 7 separate operations. I remember on a good day 3 bells could be made. I believe corkscrews were being sold in New York at Tiffany's.
