Socrates Corkscrew by Jasper Morrison for Alessi

Opening a bottle of wine is often either a chore or a challenge, requiring far more cunning than braun. But when you have a corkscrew as articulated as the Jasper Morrison's Socrates Corkscrew by Alessi, you might as well be using a 50' crane. I love the straight industrial lines and joints as a contrast to the more popular curved ergonomic shapes of today's corkscrews and kitchen gadgets.
