The CAPITANO TM is unique because of its special elongated spiral. The pitch (distance between the twists) has been increased for easy, more positive insertion into the cork. The nickel plated spirals always have the filet, or etched line, running down the spiral. This traditional spiral cuts into the cork more quickly. The non-stick coated spiral comes in a smooth, non-filet version. Crafted in France by the worlds best spiral makers. All CAPITANO TM Corkscrews are 5-3/8 inches long by 1 inch wide.
