Cousin Marco’s Italian corkscrew is much favored by wine waiters for both its functionality and its sleek design.
The two-position swinging lever gives you greater leverage in easily removing corks from wine bottles, which is especially useful for longer corks.
The curved design and the serrations of the folding blade make foil removal effortless.
It sports a convenient bottle cap opener at one end of the handle.
And it’s very comfortable to hold in your hand.
Durable stainless steel construction with soft-touch ABS handle, it is 5.2 inches long overall, with a 2 inch long helix. Made in Italy.
- Unfold the knife, cut the foil all around under the rim of the bottle, and lift off the foil cap. Re-fold the knife.
- Unfold the lever and screw, center the screw tip on the cork, and push it in up to the first turn of the helix so that it will catch when you start turning.
- With the handle held in a perpendicular position to the screw, turn the handle until most of the screw is in the cork.
- Set the lever onto the lip of the bottle and pull up on the other end of the handle to pull the cork up and out.
When you purchase corked wine, store the bottle on its side to keep the cork wet and maintain a good seal. Bottles with screw caps or rubber corks can be stored upright. Keep bottles in a relatively cool area, away from direct heat, cold, or sunlight.
