A wine key, sometimes called a waiter's corkscrew, is the traditional wine opener of choice for most establishments. They offer the perfect blend of affordability, compact size, and functionality, and they are considered to be the oldest form of opening a bottle of wine. They’re perfect for front-of-house use for servers who often open and pour wine directly at tables. Many waiter's corkscrews also include a small knife to quickly cut through the foil on a wine bottle as well as bottle cap openers. Plus, they are small enough to be put into apron pockets for convenient, immediate use.
