Wood and Brass Corkscrew
We have grown accustomed to our waiters style corkscrew, but for the uninitiated it can be a trying piece of kit to use. More often than not, it ends in busted corks with bits floating in our wine. We were given a Rabbit corkscrew, but to us it seemed like the device, although working well, was a little elaborate and cumbersome. Sometimes, the best designs are things that have been established and used for years and years. There is after all a reason that they are still around and haven't been made obsolete. It's just so easy to assume that everything that comes along is an improvement on the original, and that is not always the case. We like the corkscrew above. It has a timelessness and an engineered quality that means it will likely be the last corkscrew you'll ever buy. It could even end up being an heirloom. Not bad for $36. You can get it here.
