Laguiole Magnum Snakewood Corkscrew - C

Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 1 review

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.

No one wants to view photos of a beautiful and unique corkscrew and receive something not even close to the representative image; this is why we take pictures of each piece. Select your One-Of-A-Kind Magnum Corkscrew!

Things to Look For

The file work on the springs (top of handle) are individually hand filled by a French artisan, therefore all are different. Additionally, two handles made from the same material can have very different patterns.

Snakewood aka Amourette (Brosimum guianense) is a gorgeous wood that originates mostly from Brazil's Suriname valley.
The part sold as snakewood is really the heartwood of the much larger tree. This wood is usually felled with axes and carried on the backs of natives over streams and through jungle areas.
Each tree felled is monitored, the Brazilian government has developed a strict permit process to control harvesting. The name was inspired by the snakeskin-like markings that decorate this exotic wood.
Initially deep red in color, snakewood changes color upon being exposed to air, making the wood eventually turn reddish-brown, as you see it today.

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.
