Realtalk that is a lot of money for a (admittedly nice) wine key with a folding knife attached to it.

Although I guess spending that much money on one would guarantee you'd never forget it? "Oh a PICNIC you say let me fetch my PICNIC WINE MASTER posthaste!"
For real. For me, that's crazy money for something like this.
Man, I wish I was a big enough fan of swiss army stuff to pick this up. It is the first genuinely attractive knife I have ever seen from them, and damn is it attractive. That said, $130 is too much for me this time.
I carry a Victorinox Waiter Pocket Knife 95% of the time. It is the perfect tool for almost all of the work I need to do. I own a ton of knives and even some fantastic customs, this one still sees the most pocket time. It is the perfect size and just disappears into the pocket. Last week I went on a weekend trip and only took my Sebenza, as nice as it is I really wished I had the waiter. This picnic knife looks great but to me it really looks like overkill for the pocket.

With that said, if I was looking for something to keep in the glove box of my car, this would fit the bill very well. I see a use, but I don't see it as something that would work as a pocket carry.
Why so much more expensive than other Victorinox knives - you can get ranger models in wood for half the price. Unless the blade is upgraded from the typical Victorinox steel, it doesn't seem value for money.
I'll probably continue using my Opinel with a corkscrew. This thing lacks the style of the Laguiole to charge that much, and practicality of the Opinel.

I dunno, I bought my Opinel and my friend had to buy something "cooler" and it was Laguiole. Opinel is much more durable, simpler in construction and in fact loved by a lot of bushcrafters as a go to EDC knife. Laguiole is of course more of a "gentleman's knife", but still is a very nice option for opening a bottle and slicing some cheese :) I thing opening and closing will get better if it's not that smooth originally, but it's definitely first and foremost a style item.
My point is that if you want style - go for Laguiole, if you want practicality - use Opinel. And with this price tag, I'm not sure where Victorinox is, it's hard to see it's target audience, except the Victorinox fans.
Ooh, thanks for the hint!
Does anyone know the length of the blade? Overall length is 5.1 inches; I'm estimating the blade at 4 inches?
This is nice, but rather pricey for a corkscrew.

Victorinox makes (or made) a 'cheese' knife. It has a special blade designed to reduce resistance when slicing through cheese. I've only ever seen them on eBay for $40-$50.

Please consider making the SAK cheese knife available to Massdrop fans at a competitive price. After all, what goes better with wine than cheese?
At this price, I wish the blade had one handed access, AND that it had a cheese blade as well.
Tylenol. Tylenol and red wine: the perfect combo.
Cool wine tool, but couldn't see myself paying over $100 for something to open a wine bottle.
Neither can I. That is why I got pretty much the same tool for $3.00 at the Dollar Store.
