Uncorking is effortless thanks to the superior double-hinged design and non-stick worm of the True tap Double-Hinged Corkscrew. Complete with an integrated bottle opener and serrated foil cutter, it's our most iconic wine opener.

*Contrary to popular belief, the scorer is not meant to be sharp and merely pressed firmly against the foil and top groove of the bottle neck ferrule.
The screw is a bit thinner than I expected but it goes through synthetic and natural corks with ease. The part of the screw that attaches to the body and forms the hinge is narrow but pretty strong, no bending has occurred thorough many uses.
The double hinged system is fairly good at getting out the cork including some longer ones. After screwing the screw almost all the way into the cork, you use the first silver lever and it pries the cork up quite a bit, then you position the second lever and pry all the way out. You have to go slow on the second lever since going fast can cause a POP and some wine may get sucked up and splashed out when you pull the cork.
All in all a decent cork screw at a really good price. No more fancy ones for me, even the Screwpull has gone way downhill, I have been through 3 of them in the past 5 years or so.
UPDATE: A little less than a year of use and about a few hundred bottles, the straight sides of the levers that press against the lip of the bottle have flattened. This is because the steel isn't strong enough to handle the extreme pressure you might need to get some of the olde,r dryer, or synthetic corks out of today's wine bottles. Both levers suffered this fate and now the levers slip right off the lip. Still not a bad screw for how cheap it was. My next one will probably be the popular Spanish one.
They take a long time to arrive, too.
Being a huge wine snob, I automatically assume everyone has one of these, and then when I see someone rip out a Houdini to open a bottle of wine with a synthetic cork I want to smack them. It will pierce the cork all the way through, and since synthetic doesn't soak up the way real cork does, it will leak when you lay bottles on the side. URGHHH. Using this thing will keep nice corks from breaking. The double hinge keeps them from breaking and gently finesses them out with a good hand. It's easy to use, smooth, and comes in a ton of fun colors. It's a quarter of the price of the pulltap model which does the EXACT same thing.
I demo how easy it is-and I keep an extra in my purse most of the time, because most of the time there's a need for the little blade on the end anyway. But for as inexpensive as these are, there's no reason you can't grab a few for every person in your life, in their favorite color. Keep a few on hand as a last minute gift idea, or an oh crap gift. Love Love Love.
I bought this one to carry in my pocket when I go on dates, just in case the girl I pick up doesn't have a corkscrew. The
Excellent product! I will being buying more.
