samsam – Multi Bottle Opener & Corkscrew
Yes, the waiter’s friend model is still the most efficient at removing corks, with the most compact design.
It’s less cumbersome than a lever corkscrew or winged corkscrew and can more easily be stowed away in any kitchen drawer.
Of all of the waiter’s friend models a Double-Hinged is one of the best ways to open one, It has the standard knife to remove wine bottle foil and is housed in the Hinge.
The worm twists smoothly into both classic and Diam corks. But its the double-hinged fulcrum made it possible to maintain leverage, even with the worm twisted all the way into the cork rather than halfway or most of the way, which is what many single-hinged versions demand.
