There is an old saying: "the more things change, the more they stay the same". This is certainly true when it comes to corkscrews. The authentic, antique design of The Lever Corkscrew was taken from corkscrews dating back to Victorian Europe. The first cycle of The Lever Corkscrew inserts the speedworm into the cork with one downward motion of the long handle. Then on the reverse stroke of the handle it lifts the cork. Then down again and the reverse stroke ejects the cork. The Lever Corkscrew is simply beautiful to watch this machine work! These unique products come in a solid wood box, perfect for all wine lovers.
