Legnoart is one of the most prominent Italian companies in the field of designed objects for the house, the kitchen and the wine cellar. Their hefty price tag can be justified based on the durability of the corkscrew. Unlike most generic corkscrews with their straight-lined body, the Legnoart’s specially designed contoured body allows for a comfortable grip. The beautifully crafted beech wood placed along the body is especially chosen for its durability, adding to the corkscrews protection during wear and tear. Lastly, its stainless steel levers worm and knife are made to fight rust and discoloration.
Gentlemen, its going to be a long night, with many bottles of wine to open. Do it right and with ease because you only get one chance to make a good first impression.
