Opening Wine.

Cork screws have undergone a complete renaissance in the past few years, with each new invention fancier than the last. But what if you want your opening ceremony to have a bit more… power? Enter CORK POPS a cork removal system that is powered by a cartridge of CO2. Of course. The device is pretty straightforward—remove the foil from your wine, jab the pointed metal end into the cork, and gentle depress the cartridge while pulling on the cork. It’ll jettison the cork safely from the bottle. It must be said—don’t try this on carbonated wine, or in a bottle that is oddly shaped—the force runs the risk of shattering the bottle. If you’re looking to open your bottles on the wild side, check out CORK POPS for $26 at
