Long shot, but has anyone seen this corkscrew at a brick and mortar store in Toronto?

http://www.amazon.com/Screwpull-Pocke...

Want to get it for an xmas gift but don't want to pay $60+ on Amazon.ca plus risk it not arriving in time. (It's an amazing corkscrew, btw, mine's 10 years old and still going strong -- never fails to uncork a bottle!

)

Thank you!

      I know this isn't the exact same one but I came across this when I was checking out their sale items!

        It's $30 on Amazon (see your own link).
        EDIT: Just realized you linked to US site not Canadian - it is indeed $60+ on .ca. Order from the U.S.!
        And I've been searching for this as well for several years - have checked multiple outlets in both Canada and US and it's rarely available - and NEVER below $20 (for many years now). I actually thought it had been discontinued - the only time I saw it recently I was flying with carry-on only so didn't want to risk it being confiscated.
        They are extremely rare - but there is a Le Creuset shop in Sherway Gardens (although I doubt it will be cheaper, but may save shipping).

          I had one and lost it to the peabrains at CATSA, not because of the screw but because they deemed the foil cutter to be a "knife", they got a ruler out and measured it and determined that it was 1/8" too long.

          I believe you can find this at the Le Creuset store in Sherway mall. I don't recall seeing it there in my last month visit but I do know it was there last Christmas. You can call them and perhaps they'll tell you if they have stock atm.

            Much belated thanks, I called them and they said they had plenty. (Ended up not getting it b/c the giftee already had one, apparently. But now I know where to go in the future!)
