Laguiole Corkscrews


Over the last 19 years we have tried most French made Laguiole corkscrews, as a result we only offer brands we trust to be the best in functions, appeal & warranty support.
The best French corkscrews are (in no special order) Chateau Laguiole, the "sommelier" from Forge de Laguiole, and the amazing Magnum corkscrew from Fontenille Pataud / Gilles. Other well know Laguiole corkscrew brands did not make our list simply because they are treated as "through away, get a new one" by their manufacturers. In other words, it is nearly impossible to get them repaired from the USA or France.

The brands we proudly offer contracted us to handle their warranty & repair claims from within the United States. What does this mean to you? If something happens to a Laguiole corkscrew (or a knife) you purchased from us you will be shipping it to us in Florida for service, not to France. We ship corkscrews for warranty or repair services around once a month, to save you, our customers around $50 of shipping cost "to & from' France. We ship from and personalize all corkscrews in Jacksonville, Florida.
