Hmm, I looked through and re-read all the topics about Flair on the MTO, I tried to find all available information on the Internet, and found no mention of this important detail anywhere. Well, I'll be the first to notice that the older (xx99 - 0200) Flair's corkscrews has 5 small turns, and the later items (0300 - xx04) - 4 larger turns :whistle:

Another intersting Flair detail - on early items (~0699 - ~1099) date code has only on knife handle, corkscrew handle without date codes  :think:


So, at now, I counted 4 different Flair modifications.

The only reason of the 5 turns vs. 4 turns is that less turns on the corckscrew worm means wider spacing and is less likely to cause damage to the cork compared to the 5 or more turns with tighter spacing. However, not sure if that's the main reason why LM decided to change the design, unless Tim is a wine aficionado or connoisseur ;) :drink:
