Antique blade corkscrew for fine French wines A museum-worthy item.
This corkscrew with blades is used to uncork important bottles that are a few years old, if not decades. Blade corkscrews also comes in handy when, by mistake, cap defect or any other reason, we find ourselves having to extract a cap completely broken or damaged.
It's simple: The two blades have to be tucked between the cap and the inner surface of the bottle neck; the longest blade should be inserted first and then the short one until the corkscrew’s handle touches the top surface of the bottle neck. Then using the handle, the cap will be extracted through a slow rotational movement: pull and rotate, pull and rotate at the same time. For this operation being calm and a firm wrist are required, especially for very old bottles.
At the end of the auction they will be carefully packaged and after payment shipped by mail with tracking.
