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.
