|Including||corkscrew, lever corkscrew, bottle opener|
Thursday 8 March 2018
My cousin a wine buyer opened an old bottle with an expensive corkscrew that looks like a nutcracker and sure enough it tore the old cork to pieces. I don’t think that would happen using this corkscrew. It’s twice what I’ve paid before for a waiter’s friend, but it really works well. The distance between the screw and lever arm (though it’s a fixed arm, not flexible two part) seems just right. There is a lot of control over opening and I find it effortless. I have a waiter’s friend with a flexible arm and walnut handle, which while prettier, is not as good. Someone else said that the serrated blade tears foil, but I haven’t found that. Perhaps the blade could be sharper for less likelihood of tearing (if that matters). Sharpen the blade Wusthof! Then you would have a perfect corkscrew.
