Do you need e new corkscrew? Choose it in our e-shop! We offer high-class corkscrews. Our corkscrews have also knives. Therefore they are sometimes called sommelier knives. Corkscrews have been used since the 17th century. English reverend Samuell Henshall was first man who had this invention patented – in 1795. Today, they are a necessary part of kitchen equipment.

Today, there are four main types of corkscrews: a basic corkscrew, wing corkscrew, sommelier knife, twin prong cork puller.

Wing corkscrew is sometimes called a butterfly corkscrew or angel corkscrew. It was invented in 1939. The use of this corkscrew is easy. As the worm is twisted into the cork, the levers are raised. Pushing down the levers draws the cork from the bottle in one smooth motion. The wing corkscrew is very popular.

Sommelier knife is sometimes called a wine key or waiter’s friend. It is a corkscrew in a folding body similar to a pocket knife. German inventor Karl Wienke had this corkscrew patented in 1882. Some sommelier knives have also bottle opener. But all sommelier knives have a small knife which is used used in cutting the foil wrapping the neck of many wine bottles. An arm extends to brace against the lip of the bottle for leverage when removing the cork.

You will find many sommelier knives (corkscrews) in our e-shop. Just choose it!
