Description: This model was designed to celebrate Marcus Del Monego, Best Sommelier of the World, 1998. It uses the Grand Cru framework which has a re-inforced joint between the spiral and the handle, resulting in a stronger, more resilient corkscrew. The wood handle is formed from grape vine wood. The foil cutter has been lightly serrated.
Chateau Laguiole’s home is in Thiers, France which has been a center of cutlery manufacture since the twelfth century. In the 1980's, wine sommelier and collector of Laguiole knives Guy Vialis brought his dual passions as wine waiter and knife collector together, developing a waiter's corkscrew that was at once elegant and functional. Vialis' creation is the renowned Chateau Laguiole corkscrew. He wanted to make a knife which would be perfect for both the professional as well as the amateur wine buff.
Includes leather sheath and cardboard box.
Handmade in France.
