Looks good, but better openers are out there
First, a confession: Although I purchase many of our wine accessories from IWA, I bought this Rabbit opener from another retailer. Nonetheless, I wanted to share my experience with IWA customers.
I thought this would be easy to use, but sometimes the worm doesn't line up properly -- and you can't tell because everything is happening inside the cylinder, where you can't see it. Despite the long arm, I found that it wasn't easy to get good leverage for tight corks. I also discovered that after a while the black plastic hinged portion of this opener developed a sticky texture; I'll try to scrub that off before I offer it to other wine friends who might like it better than I do.
For me, I'm sticking to my traditional Rabbit opener -- but I'm just as happy with one of my nice double-hinged waiter's corkscrews!
What you see is what you get
Straightforward design, easy to use.
would not recommend this
I did not like this model - The Rabbit with a lever is a far better product and easier to use.
