No one has mentioned the recent discovery that if tourqued too hard.  the backside phillips can snap off due to the thin shank/tang of the driver. 

Good point, but dks already mentioned it ;)

It's the sort of tool you think "oh, why would I need this?" until something happens... like you are terribly drunk with friends and you need to open that bottle...

Correct: The corkscrew is definitely the tool with the highest potential to convert the owner a true hero.

I "saved" a big catered University donor party at a museum once ...the caterer forgot a corkscrew and me, the always helpful "SAK guy", pulled out my Champion and handed it to the staff....30+ bottles of wine were opened that night. Lots of thank you's and a free bottle of Pinot Noir came later that evening!  8)

If a product standardized for umpteen million users should only contain the tools all of them want, a SAK would have exactly 0 (zero) tools.

In other news, some people drink wine from glass bottles sealed with real cork for long term storage, some people carry stacks of newspapers bundled together with sharp-edged straps and some people buy canned food with no opener tab.
