Theories abound as to the origin of the Ah-So Cork Puller's name. More certain is that this German made version is the best of the type, with a quality and ease of use that outperforms cheap copies. The two hardened steel prongs embrace the cork, to remove and re-insert it without damaging the cork or getting pieces of cork in the wine. It is especially ideal for handling the brittle corks of aged fine wines. The satin finished; die-cast zinc top does double duty as a bottle opener.
