World's Smallest Corkscrew is a Keychain

There are a lot of bottle opener/keychain combo for beer lovers, but what if your beverage of choice is wine? And not the "in-the-box" kind?

Fret not! Here comes the world's smallest corkscrew that just so happens to double as a keychain as well:

This ingenious keyring-friendly gizmo comprises a 4mm stainless steel bar that passes through the centre of a full size corkscrew helix. When your cork needs popping simply slide out the bar, thread it through the top of the screw section and you’re good to go.

i was skeptical but not at all incredulous at the idea. smacking the bottom of a snapple makes the top pop; that energy has to go SOMEWHERE. anyways, i've tried it and was pleased to find it works like a charm (though sometimes it's necessary to break the cork free from the walls of the neck with a small knife, or push it in a bit just to get things moving.

Nutbastard, a few months ago I sent that video to my dad and uncle, who are both wine drinkers, and they both called "fake" on it. So I tried it myself and was amazed to find that it worked. (I also shot video of it and sent it to them with a so-there.)

I prefer the shoe method when I haven't got a proper cork screw.

Actually, I prefer it even if I have got one, as it's a much more fun way to open a bottle. Snobs will advise against this based on claims of 'bruising' the wine. To that I say meh.

video if you haven't seen this method:

Interesting, but you have to take it off your keyring to use it. A better design would include a quick-release for the key part.
