Other Interesting Points -
Of all the corkscrews produced in the world there is nothing quite as practical, reliable and portable as a waiter's friend. Invented by a German, Mr Carl F.A. Weinke, who obtained a patent in 1883, the waiter's friend is an extremely simple but effective lever type corkscrew. It is usually comprises of a bottle opener, corkscrew and a knife for removing foils. Well designed versions fold away comfortably enough to carry in one's pocket without getting poked, ideal for picnics, parties, bar staff, butlers and waiters too!
