C'est vraiment cool, moi même j'en ai un et je l'aime bien donc j'ai acheté celui ci pour faire un cadeau de Noël. Mes amis ont été enchantés, ils m'ont dit que c'était le meilleur cadeau qu'ils avaient reçu.

Started to get stiff a few months ago while using and finally has gotten stuck in the open position.
Very disappointed as I enjoyed using it while it worked.

This thing works great, is well built and it's also great looking. Tool for cutting wax hides away in the case which is sitting out on the bar for easy storage.

HASH(0x9bb7ece4) out of 5 stars Best "Rabbit" Yet !!! May 5 2009
By Black Hawk - Published on Amazon.com
Color: Velvet Black Verified Purchase
This is the newly designed "Vertical Rabbit" wine opener. I purchased The original version about 5 years ago. It worked OK, but was cumbersome and awkward to use. This new design is TERRIFIC !!!!!!

Here's what you do to open a bottle:
1. Squeeze and Rotate the supplied foil cutter to cut the top of the foil off
2. Slide the black opener over the top of the bottle with the silver handle raised
3. Grasp the opener firmly as you push the silver handle down...then pull it up again....POP....the cork (real or synthetic) is out!!!
4. Repeat (3) again to eject the cork from the opener
(NOTE: gorilla strength NOT required)

My first reaction was, "THIS CAN'T BE THAT EASY!"...but it is, because the same thing has happened over and over since then.

Finally, for storage the new design stands up on a shelf...or lies down in a drawer (unlike its bulky predecessor). The clear plastic storage case can also be used because it contains a replacement corkscrew.

This is a no-brainer must-get...Highly Recommended!!

HASH(0x9bb7ef30) out of 5 stars The Best Yet Feb. 4 2010
By J. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Color: Gun-Metal Grey Verified Purchase
I open 1-2 bottles of wine a week and prior to purchasing the Vertical Rabbit, owned an inexpensive three handle rabit opener as well as a teflon coated screw top type. The three handle rabbit worked fine for a couple of years, though it took a bit of coordination for guests to use. However, it later gave out, and would simply screw in and out without extracting the cork. So I went back to my teflon coated screw type and it worked well with a bit of twisting effort, until the plastic broke.

So in this search I wanted a better quality product that was still easy to use. After ready many positive reviews on the Metrokane Vertical Rabbit, I decided to give it a try.

Ease of use: This corkscrew takes a couple bottles to get used to, but once you do, it is very easy to use. Because it requires some pressure around the base, I would say this is not ideal for women with small hands. My wife is taller and can use it just fine. The lack of side handles is a plus in my mind. Simply raise the lever up, drop over the bottle, squeeze, and press down on the lever. Then repeat off the bottle and the cork drops off effortlessly. Couldn't be more beautifully simple. The foil cutter works well for both lead and plastic foils in my experience.

Build Quality: The packaging is very attractive and would make a nice gift. The corkscrew itself is overall well built. The lever is heavy metal with rubber inserts for comfort and grip. I was surprised that the base was plastic, as it looked like metal in the pictures (nice paint job). However, since the pressure is primarily on the lever and the base is spread around the bottle top, I think it will hold up. And I suppose all metal construction would be a bit heavy.

Summary: The Veritical Rabbit does what it is supposed to and does it well. It looks great too. While the price is a bit steap for a corkscrew, if you enjoy wine and gadgets, I think you will find it to be worth it.

HASH(0x9bb7eef4) out of 5 stars Concept good, execution not so April 11 2010
By Mike West - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this one a year and a half ago to replace an older model Rabbit which died after many years. It looks great and worked OK at first (although it does feel a lot flimsier that the original), but after several months it became sporatic, sometimes opening fine and sometimes not. Now, after a year and a half and less than 100 corks total, it either pushes the cork into the bottle or merely pushes the corkscrew in and out of the cork without removing it. I have gone to the Metrokane website and followed their instructions carefully. I also called them, but the phone message just refers you to their website. They say most defects are due to operator error, but I have been using their product for over ten years and I don't think it's me!

HASH(0x9bf2f264) out of 5 stars Works great but expect it to break Sept. 27 2010
By Internet shopper - Published on Amazon.com
Color: Velvet Black Verified Purchase
The Rabit has been used everyday for the last 8 months and worked great but it finally gave up. It would no longer eject the cork from the screw.
Before it totally stopped working we noticed a small metal piece that came out of the unit. Subsequently a similar piece came out and the corkscrew was unusable.
The material that broke was from a molded metal part. This specific type of material has very little mechanical strength and I expect it to happen again.

We mailed it back to Metrokane and included $10. A replacement came 3 days later.
NOTE: Warranty normally requires the customer to pay for the return freight and the company will ship a repaired/new unit to the customer free of charge. In our case the added cost has been $16.80.
I would have given it 5 stars but had to deduct 2 for the unusual $10 warranty charge.

UPDATE
The replacement we received after paying $16.80 failed after only 7 months. I have degraded the quality to one star. It will be going in the trash.
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.

HASH(0x9bf2f114) out of 5 stars Best corkscrew ever Oct. 18 2008
By Geoff Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Color: Velvet Black Verified Purchase
This corkscrew works better than any other that I have used. It pulls corks out with ease, then ejects them with minimal effort - the Achilles heal of most corkscrews. The only down side is the price. If you drink wine regularly, you'll never regret your purchase. It works just as well on plastic "corks" as real ones - something many lever-style corkscrews can't claim.
