Forgive me if this has been covered exhaustively in the past and if it’s a waste of space on the forum but I’ve sustained an embarrassing number of injuries from the dull foil cutter on my wine key that I otherwise really like.
any suggestions for an ergonomic wine key with a really good foil cutter? I’m not gonna spend $100 on a pearl handled one with unicorn hairs inside. But I’m willing to spend a few extra $ to ensure my safety :) thanks!
I swear by the mid level (innovation model) Coutale, my wine director took one look at my raggedy looking foil cut and immediately handed me one of his extras
the nicer ones have a jagged blade though.
I can’t keep my Coutale blade sharp. It’s great when I sharpen it, but a few foils in the Edge is just gone. How do you maintain yours?
While this may seem extreme, I've had good results keeping it sharp with the knife sharpener attachment on my Dremel. And the dremel has a million and one other uses besides.
Seconding Mr. Bihm on the Coutale series - have worked with a lot of different corkscrews and have come to feel that the QPR on the coutale is about the best there is...at least for me.
