I think that  most of you know the Best sommelier of the world Markus del
Monego.
He signed a beautiful corkscrew handcrafted in France with a vine stock
handle.

This week there is a special on this corkscrew on http://www.laguiole.com

Not to sound too sarcastic, but spending $150 US (plus shipping) to
open a bottle of wine seems a bit too pretentious to me.

I make about 75 bottles for that much...

Joe

I think that it is more respectful for the wine and for your gest to open a
good bottle of wine (like "Chateau Petrus" for example) with a very nice
corkscrew rather than with a plactic corkscrew...but it is my opinion.
I accept that you don't want to buy a handcrafted corkscrew signed by the
best sommelier of the world if you prefer to buy a good bootle of wine for
this price ;-)))) I agree....but it is not the same use.

I understand your point of view and you are right, if I spend that
much it will be on a good bottle.  (Actually, it wouldn't be a classed
growth or even a Bordeaux, I'm thinking I would love to try one of
Henri Jayers Burgundies or a really solid Rhone.)

To each his own, both are artistic impressions.
Regards
Joe
