Starting with:

The good, and in fact very good - No question about it, the Coutale concept of a spring loaded smaller foot inserted within the main foot is brilliant, way better than just about anything (two part foot, broken, and of course single) to extricate a recalcitrant cork. The short but coated screw goes in nicely and manages dry corks pretty well. Grade: A.

However, moving on to:

The bad and rather obnoxious - Once pulled out and used, the foot doesn't fit snugly back in the main body of the corkscrew and instead flops about like a broken wrist and gets in the way, making the task of threading, specially through tough corks, more irritating that it should be. B-/C.

But it goes from bad to:

Very, very ugly - The foil cutting blade on the sommelier version is an absolute, total disaster, a pathetically dull blade with a ridiculously pointed end that is very successful at slicing careless fingers (nothing like a blood stained label as a selling ploy), and perhaps killing pigs, but is near useless at cutting through foil. Very disappointing and ubersucky: I've resorted to removing the foil completely, which rather spoils the presentation, or using a separate knife or foil cutter in all cases. If this was a play for the triumph of form over function (it looks good) then bravo, otherwise it gets an F.

The worst of it is that these problems are FIXABLE, if not by the buyer. I'm a professional in the wine trade who may open up to a dozen bottles on any day: I can't imagine how obnoxious these issues must be for a sommelier who pulls double that each day. I'd pay triple if these glitches were fixed. As such, the good parts are the only things that keep me from forgetting this corkscrew in a drawer.

This is the best corkscrew of it's kind! I am a professional bartender and server and this is the only corkscrew I buy now - for work and home. The design of the double-pump is much more ergonomic than your regular double-pump corkscrews and it makes much more sense. (It may take a minute to get the hang of it because it's the opposite lever direction than you're probably used to, but after a few times using it you'll love it.) It is also light-weight and durable, and the price is awesome!

I have a rather serious wine obsession and have been a big fan of of the Coutale waiter's corkscrew. Unfortunately, I mistakenly ordered 3 of these, thinking it was the one I had been buying and using (and unfortunately, eventually losing) for years. Little did I know that this is a pale imitation. Rather than having the foot on the end, allowing you to pull up on the handle as a lever to cleanly and effortlessly extract the cork, this version has the foot right before the worm. In order to pull the cork, you must push down on the handle, while simultaneously pulling up on the end part (past the worm). Needless to say, this causes corks to crumble and your hand to ache. Worst of all, it's very easy to injure yourself with this, as you must exert great force for the cork to come out, and once it finally does, your fingers get crushed between the handle and foot.
Do yourself a favor. Stay FAR away from this model. The amazing, classic Coutale waiter's corkscrew (albeit with a mere fold-out blade, rather than the the built-in foilcutter they used to have) can be found on Amazon here: http://amzn.to/29IkHN8

I liked the design, especially for fragile corks, but after 8 months of home use the screw fell out of the main body.

My husband is 70 and has opened many bottles of wine with many types of corkscrews, really. This corkscrew is the best he or I have ever used, and the price is unbeatable! Why? The whole thing is made with lightweight, strong metal. All of the folding parts operate easily (no broken finger nails). the quality of the parts (screw, hinges, knife, lever, and handle) are top notch and the stampings/castings are precisely accurate. The 2-step pull-up method handles difficult corks easily and is very easy to use, even for me, but if you prefer you can use the 1-step. The best part is the action which is totally opposite to standard corkscrews. With the bottle standing on a table, you push down instead of pulling up on the handle, which is an easier action and results in a smooth cork removal with no chance of slopping or spilling the wine if there is a lurch, which sometimes occurs with the pull-up type of corkscrew. Everyone, including us (grey-beards included) will appreciate the easy and efficient push-down action. Simply a GREAT corkscrew! And they make wonderful gifts.

I own two of these corkscrews and have been very impressed. As a professional bartender these corkscrews allow me to open a bottle of wine in moments and provide a sharp blade that I can multitask. My only complaint, as seems to be a common one, is that the arm of the corkscrew becomes loose very quickly and tends to "flop" around. Regardless, I would definitely purchase more of these in the future.

I took a chance on this product due to the high reviews here on Amazon. I'm glad I did. I like everything about it! The weight is just right, the material provides a good grip and a nice aesthetic, and the action is very smooth. The knife works very well, the bottle opener can be used without moving anything, and all the parts came well lubricated. Highly recommended.

Edit: I guess I've had this for awhile now, but I'm upset to report that it recently broke. The plastic "head" piece that surrounds the blade-casing on top broke off like a clamshell. Perhaps I should have been more careful with it, but I wish that one piece had been constructed a bit more sturdily. I still recommend this, but don't think I'll be buying a second knowing my butter-fingers.
