After years of planning, a bold version of the classic Laguiole corkscrew has finally reached the wine industry. This long-awaited super high-end Laguiole waiter's corkscrew features a patented one-piece two-step boot lever, a forged one-piece spring & bee, and a non-serrated foil cutter to facilitate sharpening.
What sets this tool apart from all others, including non-Laguiole corkscrews, is its size and ergonomics. At 5.6 oz, 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, and of course, it is 100% Made in France.
Each Magnum is made entirely by a single craftsman from start to finish, ensuring pride of ownership of the final piece.
You will receive the actual Magnum corkscrew shown in the photos.

Things to Look For
The file work on the spring (top of handle) is individually hand filled by a French artisan, therefore all are different. Additionally, two handles made from the same material can have very different patterns.
Important to know

Desert Ironwood (Olneya tesota) - One of the world hardest wood and most difficult to work with due to its density.
This increasingly rare wood comes from dead trees that have been left to dry in the desert heat for decades. As it starts to fossilize, the wood turns reddish brown with a golden hue and beautiful veining. The wood from this very slow growing tree can be well over 100 years old. Harvested in Arizona or Northwestern Mexico.
Good to know: Ironwood can sometimes show tiny knots or small depressions within the wood. This is not considered a defect but rather a characteristic of this wood.
Magnum corkscrews are entirely handmade in Europe's capital of cutlery, "Thiers." The "Gilles®" Fontenille Pataud® collections of cutlery are considered by many to be some of the best money can buy.
