“Unicork, a unicorn cockscrew

Not to get all pedantic or anything, but that description isn’t selling it. For me, anyway.

The original review says “was”. At 1.2 pounds (544 g), I believe him.

Enough years on the internet has made me believe that a unicorn cockscrew would sell in huge numbers- but this ain’t one of those.

Amusing, but I’ll stick with a sommelier knife. Rack and pinion corkscrews are also handy, albeit too bulky for my taste.

I suspect the headline is a typo, but with Rob you can never be certain…

It’s a good (possible) typo. I hope he leaves it.

Wouldn’t this be considered a Screwnicorn? :thinking:

The duck corkscrews are pretty fun :slight_smile:

Aye, it sounds rather… uncomfortable.

Unless, of course, that sort of thing happens to be your fetish…

“The iPhone of corkscrews”.

So it becomes obsolete every 6 months?

I’ve corrected my mistake: the post is now properly tagged “sounding”

I’m both mildly disappointed and extremely relieved to find it’s the only article tagged “sounding”.

Lets keep it this way forever.
