What sets this tool apart from all others including non-Laguiole corkscrews is its size and ergonomics. At 5.6 oz / 160 grams it is not a lightweight tool, but it feels surprisingly good in any size hands male or female. This object of pure luxury is taking over the two-step corkscrew business.
The Magnums are entirely handmade in Europe's capital of cutlery "Thiers", France. The “Gilles®” Fontenille Pataud collections of cutlery are considered by many to be some of the best money can buy. All items offered by Gilles are entirely made by a single craftsman from start to finish ensuring pride of ownership of the final piece.
EXACT LAGUIOLE MAGNUM PICTURED
No one wants to view photos of a beautiful object and receive something not even close to the representative photo. It is common practice for retailers to show an exceptional corkscrew to trigger a sale and ship something similar but not as attractive. If you are dissatisfied with your knife and you purchased it oversea you will need to: 1. Pay for costly international return shipping or 2. Keep the corkscrew and wish you had purchased it from us. We take photos of each Laguiole Magnum, as a result you can see exactly what you are going to receive. Although taking 1000's of photos a month is literary a full time position we don't charge extra for this service! It's your investment, you must know what you are going to receive!
THINGS TO LOOK FOR
1. The file work on the springs' top are individually hand-filled. As a result, each top is unique.
2. Two handles made from the same type of material can have very different patterns.
