I have a wine cellar and used to opt for a lever model brand of screwpullhttp://www.wineaccessory.com/Images/%237320.jpgIt's works quite well but it just so big. My wife loves it because it's
_very_ easy to use. Right now I have a drawer full of waiters corkscrews --
the normal kind that just fold up and you can slip in  your pocket -- that I
got from working at a wine competition at the State Fair. If you want the
Rolls Royce of this style, look no further than Laguiole. They are truly
works of art:http://www.laguiole.com/index2.htmDan explained why these are good MUCH better that I could. Were I to
recommend a wonderful, inexpensive helix screw that may be a little easier
(albeit slower) to use than a waiters model, I would tell you to look at a
Screwpull model. Specifically:http://store5.yimg.com/I/kkapers2_1715_73327795The run about $17 are are super. The teflon coated helix slips smootly into
the cork and extracts it effortlessly while you keep turning. I keep one in
both car's glove boxes for those tailgaiting/picnic events where no on
remebers a screw! In a pinch they even work to remove that stubborn Sierra
Nevada Pale Ale cap!
