Finally getting there! But following the general trend of this thread you have taken the orthogonal route. This item is more associated with bottles with corks than those with screw caps.

Ah. I believe I have figured it out. This is one of those stoppers they put in a wine bottle at a restaurant that has a pour spout?

Does the TF actually know about the soda cans and PVC pipe from 30 years ago?

Afraid not. You would use this before that stage!

One of those things that injects CO₂ into the bottle to pressure the cork out? I don't know what they are called or even certain if that is how they work, but I hope that description is close enough if that is what it is.

Surely everyone is dodging the answer with obscure questions by now?

No dodging I don't think, nobody's looking very near yet.

So something either before or during the opening of a bottle of wine, may be used by a sommelier but plebs can also use/own one.

  • A sharp object to cut through/remove the plastic covering the cork

  • Something to keep the wine at the correct temperature (with the obtuse answers I am still not sure if temperature is involved)

  • A line of coke (to get through the guessing game before being allowed to serve a glass of wine)

  • Bas (external link)

    Because of your use of the double negative, you are almost right.:-D

  • This answer is so close to right it is possible it is right. Not being a wine drinker and living when few people drink wine daily, I truly don't know if it is close enough or not.

    Last night I found the item looking at wine tool images. I did not post the question because I was already posting a question and Ed was leaving for eight hours. It is a wine bottle foil cutter. It cuts the foil around the cork.

    Who posted the image, and who is supposed to be answering the questions? More importantly who decides who has won?

    I am lost.

    Correct. I have no idea who actually got this right! It is a wine foil cutter. They come free with us when you buy wine in the six or twelve bottle quantity. The cutters are identical to those used for photographic prints. In Oz and NZ the trend is to screw caps without the foil.

    There seems to be no "proper" word to describe it. In checking, I came across the wonderful words muselet and agraffe, which describe respectively the entire assembly for a champagne bottle of cork, wire nest and disk and the wire cage alone.

    Over to NoGo or whoever actually said it.

    BasAndrews was close enough for me if he wishes to host one.

    If not I will find something.

    I think say BasAndrews is up.. ?

    • A sharp object to cut through/remove the plastic covering the cork

    It cuts any covering.
    My copy of this tool has "Screwpull" moulded into it. I do have a Screwpull, which is simple very effective corkscrew, so it probably came with that. I'd been fondling it wondering whether it would be suitable for the challenge, so it was odd seeing it come up.
