A close friend gave me a gorgeous corkscrew, and I use it 2-3 times a week and think of them. Every time I open a bottle of wine, the corkscrew makes me happy.
The hinged end makes it easier to pull a cork. The knife cuts through the lead foil like butter, and the wood...heck the whole thing just feels wonderful in your hand.
I know, it is silly, but it truly is beautiful. Given to a wine geek, this is a gift that keeps on giving.
