The perfect gift for anyone who likes wine, but especially someone for whom 1973 bears special significance, whether it commemorates a wedding anniversary, birth year, graduation, or other event.

From Wiki: "The twin prong cork puller, also called the Butler's Friend or Ah-So, is shaped like a large key with a squared oval handle about 5 cm × 8 cm, and two thin metal strips, approximately 10 cm long, 5 mm wide, and 0.5 mm thick, descending in tandem from the center of the handle. The two strips are spread open and then wiggled into the space between the cork and the bottle on either side. Once fully in place, a turn and pull of the handle causes friction to turn the cork and pull it out of the bottle.

"'Ah-so' is a translation of the German title, "Ach so!",[citation needed] an expression meaning roughly 'Ah, I see.' ... The ah-so is useful in opening old bottles with brittle corks, because it does not puncture the cork, limiting the likelihood of a brittle cork crumbling into the wine. However, the Ah-So can inadvertently push the cork further into the bottle instead of extracting it."

Measures about 4.5" in length overall, and about 2.5 inches wide at the handle.

I'll wrap this in packing materials and ship it in a large envelope. If you would prefer that it be boxed, please contact me to make arrangements for additional shipping charges, if any.

Feel free to combine items without worry -- if the amount charged for shipping exceeds the actual shipping costs by more than $1, I will refund the balance to you.
