Are there already pics of the Hunter Pro Alox?

Seconded. Do we even know anything about it, like what tools it will have?
:ahhh

The Hunter Pro is just one big blade, no tools. I hope it is a really big one hand opening Alox Solo.

Syph007 commented on the Hunter Pro a few years ago...didn't give it very high marks; in fact didn't seem to like it's design/mfgring at all.
If I wanted to carry something that big as a single-blade EDC, I think there are too many other good choices.
Maybe so, but I still want to see a picture of it...

Hooray!!
Now maybe they can stop putting a corkscrew on every other model.
The Swiss must drink an obscene amount of wine for all the importance they put on having a corkscrew at all times.

Mate... If you came from, or had grown up in Country that produces some of the world's finest wines, and has a proper wine culture you would understand....  :facepalm:

A lot of the casual Sak users over here, if you give them a choice between having a CS or an SD on their sak's probably 70% or so would prefer the CS. And they don't need to drink "an obscene amount of wine"...  :pok:
About 90% of all wine sold at stores or supermarket over here and in most of fine wine producing countries are corked glass wine bottles. Any wine that comes in any other kind of containers is usually used for cooking, not drinking...

If we go down that route we could use the same analogy for the bottle opener and can opener to an extent... :pok:

Also, the backtool Philips is useless, the can opener does a better job. So, CS all the way. Plus you can store your eye-glass screwdriver in the CS.

I've never seen a 2-stage hinged lever like that on this kind of corkscrew.  Seems like an unnecessary complication, but maybe it's better to use somehow.
The olive wood version looks nice.
But it's £135 on the Victorinox UK shop, ouch.

All good CS are 2-staged and hinged or at least here they are. Works a lot better than a 1-stage.

Slight correction: all good handheld corkscrews are hinged. I sometimes wish there was enough wine in my life to actually warrant setting up the Swiss made Rapid corkscrew I found for next to nothing. Like this. Doesn't really fit I'm my EDC though... :whistle:



But yes, the hinging makes a lot of difference!

Specifically, the "hinging" gives you compound leverage.  Takes about a third the amount of force to remove the cork.

I guess the difference between this 2-stage fulcrum and the "normal" waiter's friend type of corkscrew is that you get more leverage, because the fulcrum and the corkscrew can be closer together.  With the type I'm familiar with, there needs to be more distance between the screw and the fulcrum, so there's enough clearance to hook it over the rim of the bottle.

It also lets you get all of the screw inside the cork before applying force to remove the cork from the bottle. The handle stays at a more horizontal position for you to start pulling it up. Takes less strength to use it. When it gets about 45º, you switch to the second stage and the handle is once again closer to the horizontal position, again easier to start applying force to it.

Important note: DO NOT MOVE THE BOTTLE, MOVE THE OPENER! This prevents the eventual sediments to get stirred and "cloud" the wine.

On the same subject, the two-bladed cork remover (can't call it cork screw, since you don't smurf the cork...).

And here's how it looks in the shop window of the UK flagship store with that magnificent price tag.  You can't see it in the photo, but the pouch / sheath has "Winemaster" written on it.

I wonder why Victorinox didn't put a cheese blade on the Winemaster, plus the serated 'bread knife' of the cheese knife instead of this plain blade. You would have it all in one knife! And name it "Restaurant Deluxe' or something alike.
