This durable Franmara Automatic Gold Plated Corkscrew is constructed of all-metal parts. The Gold plating gives it the brilliant shine and modern look typical of tools from this Italian manufacturer. The sharpened spiral of the Franmara Automatic Gold Plated Corkscrew makes it easier to pierce corks or plastic bottle stoppers in just the right spot, while a rotating ring in the center of the handle flips up 45 degrees to let you know when the spiral is deep enough within the cork to pull. The T-bar handle is comfortable for smaller hands to grip with two fingers on either side of the neck, and easy to lift and pull on for extracting the cork. True to the Pedrini name, this bar tool succeeds in both function and design, and is covered by a lifetime warranty.
