After years of planning, a bold version to 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 set 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.
The Magnums 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. All items offered by Gilles are entirely made by a single craftsman from start to finish ensuring pride of ownership of the final piece.
The Guilloche series features a fully chiseled blade top as well as chiseled liners top and bottom.

What is a Forged Bee? You can recognize a forged bee when you look just below it, where it meets the decorated spring. If you do not see any gaps, it's a good sign that the bee and spring were forged from the same piece of metal. You can also recognize a soldered bee by noticing a straight gap/ridge where the bee meets the spring.
