This small advertising piece is both a pocket pen knife and corkscrew. The slaps appears to be a mother-of-pearl plastic set in polished, white metal. One end has a standard blade with a bottle opener at the base. It is stamped Camco U.S.A.. Apparently Camco was a line put out by the well known Camillus knife company. From the center of the slaps there is a small folding corkscrew. One slab reads; Julius Wile Importers - Compliments of Richard Miller. The other side reads; Benedictine 86 (percent) - Peter Dawson 86.8 (percent) - Dry Sack (Sherry) - Bollinger. I believe this handy little bartender's tool is from the 1950's.
It measures about 2 13/16" long in the closed position and about 4 7/8" with the blade extended. The corkscrew measures about 1 3/8" long. It is in very nice condition with minimal wear. It does not appear that the blade has ever been sharpened and the corkscrew has a sharp point. There is some discoloration the bottle opener base of the blade. The slaps are in good condition and the advertising shows minor wear.
