Most helpful critical review
on February 7, 2014
I have a corkscrew when I travel and my last one was taken from me as a potential weapon. I ordered this one for checked baggage.
This worked just OK, at home, nice foil cutter (good for that alone) though, but it did not bring the cork up enough so I recommend a two stage opener (which has 2 levels of cork removal, as seen on the part that rests on the bottle edge). Google wine openers is you want to see types. I personally do not think a cork screw could be used as a weapon but you do not argue with an inspector or you can have a major delay; I have had very small fabric scissors taken away (blunt tips and about a 1" blade), and ~1" long total, tiny, eyglass repair screwdriver with very small screws in the clear handle, and I am sure you all have an unusual story. I do not recommend this opener and would not buy again. I hope this helps someone.
