Handmade in the village of Laguiole, France, the Forge de Laguiole "Sommeliers" as they are often called are the only high-end waiter-style corkscrews to feature the traditional shepherd's cross on most models.
This wine opener was created in collaboration with professional sommeliers in France and around the world. 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 is entirely hand-assembled and completed by the same craftsman to ensure pride in the completed object.
Overall length Folded:.3/4 inches (12 cm). Foil cutter:1.5/8 inches ~ 4.06 cm. Weight: ~ 3 oz (85 grams)
All Forge de Laguiole corkscrews are made of Martensitic stainless steel. It is important to note that high-grade (and cost) martensitic stainless steel is used due to its hardness, strength, and wear resistance qualities.
The foil cutter is non-serrated to achieve a clean cut and provide ease of sharpening. The blade also doubles as a bottle cap opener.
