No set of wine tools would be complete without the classic “Ah-So!” Cork Remover. Whether you are confronting a partially broken cork, or a synthetic or plastic cork, this is an essential tool!
This classic two-pronged design - first patented in the US in 1879 - slides alongside the cork - or the remaining piece of cork - and breaks the vacuum, while gently gripping the cork as you rock and turn the prongs, for slow and careful removal. You too will be saying “Ah - So!”* when you remove those larger cork pieces, or even those sometimes troublesome plastic corks. This latest design from Metrokane features an attractive stitched faux leather cover and a slightly heavier and more rounded handle for better leverage.
