pulltex pulltap's corkscrew

we've done our research and found that when it
comes to opening a bottle of wine simple is best
and the classic pulltex pulltap's corkscrew is 
the ultimate solution.  the teflon coated worm
inserts easily into the cork and the 2-step lever
allows the cork to be drawn vertically without 
bending or breaking. there are many knock-off 
versions out there but don't be fooled. the real
original pulltap's are handmade in barcelona  
and will last for many years of use... used by
wine enthusiasts and professionals alike it's a
great gift for anyone with an interest in wine.

The Blackwing pencil's roots go back to the 1930’s
when it was introduced by Eberhard Faber. In 1998
it was discontinued but not forgotten.  Today, the
Blackwing brand has been revived in the form of
Palomino Blackwing pencils plus a selection of
notebooks and accessories. Considered by
many to be "the best pencil ever made."
