The Original Sommelier Knife Forge de Laguiole® was created in collaboration with professional Sommeliers and thus gives it its ergonomics, elegance, and efficiency. The 5 turns conical spiral of the Forge de Laguiole corkscrew optimises its functionality, especially for the delicate corks of the finest vintage wines. The lever, whose operating principle is patented, is casted from heated metal and as a result is very resistant, hence can withstand intensive use. The blade of the Forge de Laguiole® Sommelier knife is sharpened, allowing the capsule to be cut off cleanly and easily. As most of the materials used are of natural origin, their appearance (colour, veining, grain) is likely to vary from one item to another. This waiter's friend comes with an elegant leather case and is delivred in a gift box.
