Campagnolo Corkscrew Big - satin-finished

The Campagnolo corkscrew is made by Campagnolo, in Italy that is famous among fans for inventing the now ubiquitous quick-release system in the 1930s, meaning wheels and saddles could be replaced with the flick of a lever. Campagnolo are also well known for their contributions to the development of gear changing systems.

Campagnolo was founded by Tullio Campagnolo in 1933 in the back of his father’s hardware store in Vicenza, Italy. Tullio was a talented cyclist who made a lot of inventions and innovations in the field of cycling mechanics. With over 135 patents, he influenced the story of the modern bicycle significantly.

In 1966, after hurting his hand opening a bottle of wine, he had the idea to design a new type of corkscrew that he also patented – the Campagnolo corkscrew. This corkscrew is produced in the same production facility as the bicycle components.

The lower part of the Campagnolo corkscrew is self-centering and telescopic, meaning that when it is lowered onto the neck of the bottle, the screw is positioned right in the center of the cork. You can twist the handle to screw down into the cork. By pressing down the two levers, the cork is then pulled out in one go.

The Campagnolo corkscrew is designed in such a way that it will never break through the bottom of the cork, thereby avoiding the risk of bits of cork falling into the wine.

The satin-finished corkscrew with chrome (III) plating comes in a very elegant box.

Dimensions of the box: 32,5 x 15 x 8 cm
