Forge de Laguiole corkscrews are handmade in the village of Laguiole, France/. Often called the "Sommeliers" they are the only high-end Laguiole waiter-style corkscrews to feature the traditional shepherd's cross on most models (check photos).
This Laguiole wine opener was created in collaboration with professional sommeliers. Its ergonomics, elegance, and efficiency earned it the "Prix Design Plus" (the Design Plus award) in Frankfurt, Germany. Additionally, each one of these incredibly efficient masterpieces are entirely hand assembled and completed by the same craftsman to ensure pride in the completed piece.
The Forge de Laguiole workshop is located in the tiny village of Laguiole, France - Pop. 1300 - where the Laguiole knife first appeared in the early 1800's.
