Quite a lovely item and a good price
Like them so much I give them as gifts
The idea of recovered barrel wood is warming but this corkscrew is small and therefore a bit cramped in its pulling geometry. This can lead to corks bending to breaking point before they fully extract. Materials are substantial and the double lever is necessary and functional. Nice.
The LIGNE W Origine Oak barrel waiter's corkscrew is the perfect gift for any wine lover. This unique tool features a dual lever system, a serrated foil cutter, and a Teflon-coated screw. Additionally, this little engineering marvel is entirely made from brushed stainless steel and can be deployed with one hand.
While being a beautiful piece of art, this waiter-style corkscrew is exceptionally functional and designed to be used in the grueling stress of the wine service environment. The ergonomic handle concept originates in France and is the brainchild of wine expert Sébastien Lézier, the owner and manufacturer of the internationally-famed Chateau Laguiole corkscrews. Each piece is individually numbered. Made in France by Ligne W
Note that the "wine stain" side of the handle may vary. Please include a note during checkout if you have a preference; we will do our best to accommodate your need.
This model can be deployed with one hand. The foil cutter is designed to close automatically when deploying the two-step lever.
