The Best in Wine Bottle Foil Cutters: Vacu Vin Arch

By John ~ December 14th, 2011.

Over the years, we’ve tried just about every foil cutter on the market. Most of them either didn’t work well at all or had a short working life before one of the pins popped out.

Fortunately, last fall when perusing the new Wine World Warehouse in Seattle, we came across the Vacu Vin Arch foil cutter and decided to give it a try. Low and behold, it was not only easy to use because of the innovative arch design, but it has continued to work and work and work.

In the course of almost a year now, we have opened many hundreds of bottles of wine for our samples tastings, family dinners, wine tasting dinners, and so forth, and both Kori’s and my Vacu Vin Arch are still going strong.

So throw away your old Metrokane, Screwpull, Clean-Cut, and all the rest and get yourself a Vacu Vin Arch foil cutter. I believe you’ll be happy you did. They only cost $4 – $10, depending on the vendor, and are now widely available. It would make a great stocking stuffer for the wine lover on your Christmas list.

    I thought that we had told you about this foil cutter? If not, I apologize.

    I bought mine at Wine World Warehouse in Seattle, but I’ve seen them online on Amazon as well.
