The new Grand Cru Edge series brings a little color to the famed waiter-style corkscrew. Each model features a color-dyed wood edge liner. This latest model now features a "forged bee"; in other words, the bee is now an integral part of the spring (the decorated top part) instead of being soldered. * This model has a mirror-polished metal finish.
The Grand Cru series was created to provide a contemporary style that offers additional durability. This model has the same characteristic as the classic but is more suitable for professional use (20/50 bottles per day). The added strength resides in the massif front top bolster, the part where the screw enters the handle.
