Introduction: Open a Wine Bottle in the Wilderness
Stuck in the desert with a bottle of wine and no wine opener? Problem solved!
Step 1: Materials
- A Knife
- Wine Bottle
Step 2: The Knife Method
This method will work on bottles that have rubber stoppers.
Insert the blade as far as you can into the stopper.
Turn the knife. At the same time, very slowly pull upwards.
You want to make about two full rotations for every quarter inch/five millimeters you pull out.
Once the cork is out far enough to do so, pull it by hand.
Step 3: Celebrate!
"The Screw Method" - Find two screws and work them into the cork. Use pliers to grip the screws and pull the cork out.
