Now, before you read any further, know that I LOVE the business as Samson Historical. I have purchased two other items from them and the experience was outstanding and I WILL continue to do business with them. The corkscrew for which this rating is being written was not what I expected. It looks great and I expect it will work well in the future but when I went to screw it into a cork, the handle began to “free-spin”. That is, the metal screw was not secured Into the handle. Nothing a little epoxy won’t fix but... I’m sure this is not a common occurrence and if it is, I have confidence they will fix it.
