Handmade in the village of Laguiole, France, the Forge de Laguiole "Sommeliers" as they are often called are the only high-end waiter-style corkscrews to feature the traditional shepherd's cross on most models. This wine opener was created in collaboration with professional sommeliers in France and around the world. It's ergonomics, elegance, and efficiency earned it the "Prix Design Plus" (the Design Plus award) in Frankfurt, Germany. Additionally, each one of these incredibly efficient masterpieces are entirely hand-assembled and completed by the same craftsman to ensure pride in the completed object.
