The Durand Corkscrew for Removal of Old Corks with Confidence
Review Date: 02-20-2013
I actually "invented" this device many years ago for my own use when faced with extracting challenging corks from older bottles of wine often with challenging corks. I took the screw portion of a 2-piece manual Screwpull (very fashionable at the time) and combined it with an Ah-So. Well, the Durand does exactly this in fine fashion as a beautifully crafted cork extractor. Don't baulk at the price. If you are opening fine older wines, I know of no more indispensible tool. It's simply a must-have device for any serious wine collector!
