Honestly, how many times have you heard that someone broke their wing corkscrew?
What was that? I have a 'Never' at the back. Thank you.
Moldy corks break, glass might shatter on a rare occasion, even eyes get poked out now and then when the contraption is used to remove a stubborn stopper (I once had a narrow escape as an interested moppet).
Ours has broken in two. Is it a severe case of metal fatigue? Or just plain old overuse?
(I plead not guilty, Your Honour)
