Forge de Laguiole Pinot Noir Corkscrew Oak Barrel Handle - Shiny
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.
Handle Material: Reclaimed Oak barrel wood. The outside part of the handle is the inside area of the barrel, the side that is in contact with the wine. As a result, the finish is slightly rough and has the color and scent of aged wine.
Overall length Folded:4.3/4 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.
