    I am guessing that those of you who "enjoy" a waiters corkscrew must be analog guys. I prefer something like a MetroKane Rabbit type device. I have the cork out in about 2-3 seconds.

    Interesting, thanks for the tip, I'll check it out. I also found this one: https://m.wineenthusiast.com/legnoar...-corkscrew.asp ....it looks pretty and the tiny serrations on the foil cutter means it could actually stay sharp for a while.Need a waiter's corkscrew....recommendations?

    Ooooo.... that Hicoup also has micro serrations as well. $15 Hicoup vs $$$....I think my decision is made. Thanks Kingsrule.
