Pocket knife with corkscrew? Not Laguiole or Swiss Army?

jackie Jun 4, 2010 11:31 AM

I'm looking for a gift, and specifically want to get a pocket knife that has a corkscrew. I'd prefer not to get a Laguiole or Swiss Army, only because the giftee already owns these. Case makes a neat Bartender's Pocket Knife... aside from this or buying a cool antique on eBay, does anyone have any favorites?

          Yes! I hadn't seen that one yet, thank you.
          It's amazing how few of the hundreds of pocket knives on the market have corkscrews.

      Here's an interesting looking Buck:

      Also, going back to the sommelier's tool - if you want a cheaper one:

        Since the recipient already has knives, I'd opt for the agrussell one. People can be very, very picky about their pocket knives.

        Friendly reminder that they are not allowed in airline carry-ons. I had a nice one confiscated by TSA. They politely told me they wouldn't "write me up".

          I once had my beloved Laguiole confiscated at jury duty! This was after the whole lecture about not bringing weapons into the courtroom, with me scoffing to myself, "who would be foolish enough to try THAT?" ... just forgot it was in my bag.

          How about a Leatherman Juice?

            LOL That's not a knife, it's a very small tool store.

                If carried in a man's trouser pocket, that could be considered false advertising.
