My corkscrew from Vietnam was apparently cheap-cheap...
It broke into numerous pieces as we attempted to open a bottle of wine.
(This is only the 2nd time I've ever used this corkscrew in more than two years.)
We broke out the pliers...
Mom's tool of choice:
...Then the cork broke in half ...half is still in the bottle. D'Oh!
The next day, Dad bought a new corkscrew at the local grocery store in Opera - CoOp.
It feels like cheap plastic BUT works like a charm!
Since this time... my Dad hit the jackpot when he found his favorite wine - Montepulciano - 30% off at CoOp! His favorite wine for less then two euro... WIN!
