We all love wine, right? Right! Have you ever been stuck in a hotel room or out with your friends at a barbecue in the mountains and you don’t have a way to open that perfect bottle of wine? Yes, we all have but now we have you covered with one of the most amazing knives and wine corkscrews ever.
This knife and wine corkscrew combo is named after an American group of winemakers who promote the American Rhône varietal wines. The Rhône Rangers are wine enthusiasts, growers, and teachers that educate wine enthusiasts on the excellence of Rhône wines. These wines are made from the same grapes that have been a staple in France’s Rhône River Valley for centuries. Their popularity in the United States is fostered by their versatility with food, right flavors, and the ideals of American winemakers.
We named our Damascus steel folding knife and wine corkscrew after the Rhône Rangers for two reasons. One, we love what the Rhône Rangers stand for. They are a non-profit organization that is educating and instilling the values of growing a versatile grape. Two, our laguiole design is based on the timeless design of a pocket knife from France, specifically the Massif region of France. We like to think that a field worker or winemaker would carry one of our knives for the ease of cutting bread, cheese, and opening a bottle of wine. Ya, maybe we are a little romantic in our ideas of an era long passed but there is no reason you can’t rekindle some of that magic with an amazing knife like this.
Our backspring laguiole design comes in three different versions to suit your style and features a handmade Damascus steel blade. A knife or corkscrew doesn’t have to be dull. Why not carry a piece of history and let your friends know you enjoy this classic style. The Damascus steel is incredibly sharp and the 1095 high-carbon steel is easy to sharpen, holds an edge, and ensures you always have a proper knife with you.
This knife and wine corkscrew will surely be the talk of your friends and become a trusted allie. Whether opening those Amazon boxes or uncorking a fantastic Malbec from Argentina, this knife will get you there in style.

About Forseti Steel:
The secret to forging authentic Damascus steel knives has long been lost, but Forseti Steel stays as true to the tradition as they can by commissioning smiths with Damascus ancestry to hand-make all of their blades. The artists behind the enamoring water-like patterns of folded and pounded steel have all learned their skills and techniques from the generations that worked the metals before them.
In addition to paying tribute to the Damascus practice in technique and appearance, Forseti Steel shows its respect for history's heroes, legends, and characters with their knives' names. The 9", walnut-handled Sentinel, for example, honors the Sentinels who stand guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington.
