Campagnolo 75th Anniversary Edition Corkscrew

A reader wrote in saying that in addition to the Campagnolo 75th anniversary jersey he also has a number matching Campagnolo corkscrew. The set is number 47 of 75.

First we've heard of a number matching corkscrew!

  1. What makes this a 75th Anniversary part? It would be great to be able to see special engraving (or are Larry's eyes not good enough anymore?) or something that would set this apart from the standard unit. No doubt this is the best corkscrew ever made -- Heather's dad even switched from his fancy "rabbit" model when we gave him one!

  2. I don't know if the corkscrew itself is engraved but the box has "47" on it (you have to look carefully).
