A Little Helper from the South Pole

Penguins can't fly...but they can help you open your next bottle of wine!

Made with white oak wood and stainless steel, this convenient and portable sommelier knife or "waiter's friend" features a corkscrew in a folding body similar to a pocket knife. A small foil cutter folds out from the other end to cut the wrapping off of the wine bottle. Also features a bottle opener for opening soda and beer. Made in China.

      Comments about PENGUIN CORKSCREW:

      Bought one for ourselves and one for our sister-in-law who loves penguins. Using ours for our travel bag-never seem to remember to pack one in our suitcase...and those are the times we wish we had one. So bought this to permanently stay with our other travel accessories. Is distinctive enough that it will be hard to miss when packing up for the return trip. Love that it's a practical item with a unique twist.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery-received the entire order in just four days with regular shipping! Was so pleased with the packaging too - everything came in perfect shape

          This was such a great gift to give my friend for her birthday! She loves penguins, but has never seen a corkscrew like this before. She is also a wine lover, so it made it an even better present! After buying this gift, I have constantly been on this website to find more fun presents for my friends!

            I love the penguin design, but it would be nice if it could open a bottle of wine.

              I ordered this for a gift. I can not speak about its use until she tries it. My friend collects penguins and I am hoping this will be a nice addition to her collection.

                Comments about PENGUIN CORKSCREW:

                I bought this wine key to use at my job as a server at an upscale restaurant. We are required to have a wine key handy for wine presentations to our customers. I was so excited to order this product, I love penguins and this is such an adorable and creative idea. However, once I got it in the mail,I could not use it. After many attempts, I realized that it wouldn't work because it was missing the step (The part that is pushed against the lip of the bottle for leverage). I even called to get a refund or a working model, the customer service rep was very helpful and ordered a new model, at no charge. Unfortunately the replacement version had the same problem. Alas, I am stuck to using a boring, non-penguin wine key.

                  This was a perfect gift for my boyfriend since he is in love with penguins. It operated smoothly and we had no problems with opening wine bottles. The only complaint I have is that the knife was a little hard to pull out. It really was not that bad. Overall my boyfriend and I are super pleased with the quality and style of this corkscrew.

                  A very cute design, but pulling a cork with this corkscrew is a challenge!
