The Chateau Laguiole Opus Series features extensive chiseling and filing on both the one-piece, forged bee, and spring and the liners. Each Opus is exclusively handcrafted in France by a master cutler.
Note that each piece is "One-Of-A-Kind" and individually photographed.
The Chateau Laguiole waiter-style corkscrew was created in 1993 by Master Sommeliers Guy Vialis and was the first true waiter-style Laguiole-style corkscrew on the market. Since it debuted, the Chateau Laguiole brand has been the favorite among some of the world's best sommeliers and, to this day, is the most sold (and imitated) of all high-end waiter-style Laguiole corkscrews in the world.
You will receive the actual Opus Series Corkscrew shown in the photos.
No one wants to view photos of a beautiful and unique item and receive something not even close to the representative image; this is why we take pictures of each piece. Select your One-Of-A-Kind Opus!
