While enjoying a glass of wine with friends on a beautiful Swiss summer evening, Franz Tschappu saw the difficulties waiters had uncorking expensive wine bottles with the traditional corkscrew. That evening, the prolific inventor came up with the idea to invent a corkscrew that would completely eliminate the tearing and crumbling of the corks that is unavoidable with traditional cork screws. This was the spiritual birth of the Corky.
Corky removes corks thanks to air pressure introduced into the bottle. The bottle remains intact and there are no broken, or crumbled corks.
