EXPERIENCE THE LUXURY OF A HAND MADE OBJECT
This elegantly shaped corkscrew is hand made by the craftsmen of l'Artigiano Coltelli in Scarperia, Tuscany. Each of these one-of-a-kind tools epitomizes Italian style - a perfect combination of tradition and modernity.
The handle of the Cavatappi Bue Grande is crafted from the horn of the domestic ox. It is polished to a high sheen, which gives it an almost jewel-like appearance.
I "found" my first pocket knife in my grandfather's "special" drawer amongst the silver dollars, pocket watches, and cuff links. It had a deer antler handle. When I showed it to him, he smiled and said "A pocket knife always comes in handy. Keep it sharp." That was my first knife. Now, I keep it in my "special" drawer. I have traded it for a wine tool, which always comes in handy. RM
The double-hinged fulcrum of the corkscrew allows a very clean extraction of the cork, even the longer ones. This system offers a substantial mechanical advantage over old-style single-hinged corkscrews. The serrated foil cutter blade shapes perfectly to cut the bottle’s foil with ease. All metal parts are fabricated in satin stainless steel.
In comparison to an average corkscrew, the "Bue Grande" is about 50% larger and weighted accordingly. It is impressive to hold, leaving no doubt of its high-quality construction and durability
The combination of artistic detail and presentation of this highly functioning objet d’arte is sure to impress even the most well-traveled oenophile, making the Bue Grande an ideal gift for the wine lover who thinks they have everything.
