My friends' lady friend owns this wonderful bit of kit given to her when she worked at Coventry Eagle.

It was personally given to her by Mrs. Campagnolo herself! After a factory tour back in the dim and distant. As you can see still in use today and no wine bottle has escaped its clutches so far.

That is excellent. And with a good history too!

I remember these. Didn't they do a pizza cutter too?

If you like the plastic one shown, you really like the alloy or brass coloured one, or better yet the gold plated one...

When I lived in Italy, it was a favourite to give to my friends getting married.

I have never found a cork that the "Cavatappi BIG" was not able to remove.
