Hand Forged Scroll Corkscrew
Rugged. Manly. Beautiful. Those are the 3 words that come to mind when I see this hand-forged Scroll Corkscrew from Owen Phillips of Gate Foot Forge. Feeble. Frustrated. Sweaty. Those are the 3 words that come to mind when I think about what I'd look like trying to use Phillips' hand-forged Scroll Corkscrew. Screwing corks is not one of my great talents, and if the wine opener doesn't have some notches and some leverage - or better yet, a barrel and a motor - to use in extracting the plug from the bottle, it's probably not gonna happen.
Ye burly dudes out there - no, make that burly, yet filled with finesse - the Scroll Corkscrew is all yours. Phillips makes each one from bits of old coil springs he got from a mechanic friend, finishing them with wax to develop a durable patina.
