Story

At home, on the trail, or setting out on a picnic, a good corkscrew is a must. This one, crafted from nickel-plated steel, is based off an accordian-style corkscrew designed and patented in 1919 by Jules Bart. Affectionately nicknamed the “zig zag,” it’s unique expandable arms aid in efficiently popping any cork, reducing the force needed to pull it loose. On top, just below the pull handle, a bottle opener provides double the utility. Made in France, this difficult-to-find corkscrew has acquired something of a cult following over the years, and will help imbue every event with a certain je ne sais quoi.
