The traditional waiter’s friend corkscrew, while immensely practical, has one serious failing; with corks that are very tight it’s important to get the screw deep into the cork to avoid leaving part of it in the neck of the bottle.

However, you will notice that if you do this you need to bend the lever handle down to an acute angle to get the metal shoe to rest on the rim of the bottle. This makes pulling the lever difficult, as you are applying a lateral force onto the cork when you really want an upward one. The amazing breakthrough on our corkscrew is that it has two shoes, one above the other, allowing you to fully embed the screw, but to remove the cork in 2 stages.
