Description: This playful Chateau Laguiole features the strength of the Gand Gru model with handle scales formed from oak recovered from wine barrels. The unmmistakable purple hue brought in by aging wine makes this a truly exceptional wine opener.
The "Grand Cru" Sommelier, Barrel Oak 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 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.
