I have been thinking of getting a fancy wine opener and have been eyeing a Laguiole corkscrew. I accidentally find at JCK these corkscrews and bought two - one with a plain blade and one with a Damascus blade. They are better in workmanship than the Laguiole and have better blades, especially the Damascus one. The plane blade version is serrated and the Damascus version has a smooth edge. Both get the jobs done. The corkscrew and the lever work well they are quite big and needed large knife cases. I can now open wine bottles like a sommelier :-)
Like any high end corkscrews, you really need to break into it, season it. Brand new out of box, the lever and screw can have a little resistance, making wine opening a little tough. Once seasoned, this is the best corkscrew I've over owned. The knife can be resharpened, so once blunt, you don't have to toss it aside. The knife not being serrated, feels smoother when cutting the foil, and it wouldn't catch on the foil, ripping the whole thing out. The rimgs between the "screw thread" is well spaced, so ******** in and pulling the cork out is relatively easy and not as damaging to the Cork. Overall, I love this. Great buy.
