Everybody searching for this special gadget will be quite happy to hear that it is now possible to get your port tongs in Montreal and on the web. Our port tongs are the creations of a talented Quebec-based blacksmith. 100% functional, they allow you to open your old port bottles without struggling with a rotting cork. How does it work? You only have to heat the tip of the tongs with a flaming torch. You then surround the bottle-neck with the heated tongs while softly turning the tongs once around the bottle. Finally, take a cloth, imbibed with cold water, and press it against the heated bottle-neck. This will cause a clean cut of the bottle, which means that you can now lift up the bottle neck, which still holds the cork. You just have to be careful, as the handle can be hot when the tip is heated for too long. Anyhow, this technique, dating back for centuries, still remains effective!
