Waiter Corkscrew

Waiter Corkscrew

The Waiter's Corkscrew looks like a pocket-knife that opens up having a folding design and including a small blade. It has a notched piece of metal that rests against the mouth of the bottle, to give you leverage as you yank. It is meant to be used standing up, without having to rest the bottle of wine on the table. The screw is hinged and folds out of the handle. It is still the most popular with professionals. The trick is to make sure that you are pulling the cork straight out, not at an angle. They argue that it allows more fine control over the entire process, especially important with decades-old or brittle corks. It was invented by Carl Wienke, of Germany, who received German patent DRP 20815 on 26 May 1882; and British, French and American patents in 1883. He called the "Butler's Friend" or "Waiter's Friend."
