I bought one of these for myself and later bought one for my parents and in-laws. Not only does this thing look cool, but it actually works better than most corkscrews i've used in the past. Really cool product.

Delightful form trumps function
Designer guy from Davis, CA– Verified Buyer
Mendini's parrot corkscrew is a beautiful tool with a delightful visual form. I had seen and admired pictures of it for a long time and when I finally decided to buy one, I was not disappointed. I actually found the real item to be more impressive than the photos. It works well and the materials have a quality look and feel. One minor flaw that I find annoying is the super small notch on the foil cutter. This makes opening the cutter just a bit more difficult and there's no excuse for this not being larger. Still . . . the little parrot makes me smile every time I use it.
