Chateau Laguiole Edge Series - Ebony Red

Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 1 review

The brand new 2020 Grand Cru Edge series brings a little color to the famed waiter-style corkscrew. Each model features a color-dyed wood edge liner. 
The 2020 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.

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.

The Chateau Laguiole waiter-style corkscrew was created in 1993 by Master Sommeliers Guy Vialis and was the first true high-end waiter-style Laguiole corkscrew on the market. Since it debuted, the Chateau Laguiole brand has been the favorite among most of the world's best sommeliers and, to this day, is the most sold (and imitated) of all high-end waiter-style Laguiole corkscrews.

Ebony (Diospyros crassiflora) harvested in Gabon, Africa. Ebony is the darkest wood in the world and one of the few that does not float. Generally, Ebony trees are small and slow-growing. Worldwide demand for ebony wood is very high: it’s a high-quality hardwood that’s very hard, very strong, and most of all, very black. As a result, many species of Ebony have been banned from export.

Note that the international trade of Gabon Ebony (Diospyros crassiflora) used on this model is highly regulated. 

Amaranth, also known as "Purpleheart" (Peltogyne spp) harvested in central America.
This beautiful Latin American hardwood is extremely popular for furniture and other small objects such as cutlery. 

Note: This wood species is not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
