Using these was always a fun show when I worked in a tasting room. People love to be entertained by a simple gadget that opens a bottle of wine. (Has anyone tried to open a bottle of wine recently? Sometimes it can be quite challenging!) Anyway - I love these things. They are great "man" gifts as they have the "gizmo/trinket" effect written all over them. All of these models have the proper shape that should allow someone to easily open a bottle of wine whether it's bottled with a real cork or synthetic.
