L’Atelier du Vin – The Twin Blade Corkscrew

twin-blade-corkscrewWhat a great little tool! A good conversation starter next time you have some friends round for a wine. Also, aptly, know as a Butler’s thief. It really is easy to use, see the video below

Advantages:
1. it looks really cool
2. you don’t get any bits of cork going into the wine
3. great for older corks
4. the cork stays intact – good for counterfeiters!?
5. can be used to put the cork back into the bottle

Disadvantages:
1. need a separate foil cutter
2. can push cork in if you are not careful (but be careful and it’ll be sweet)
3. not so good on synthetic corks
4. troublesome with screwcaps
