Can someone use a cork screw to remove a cork in a bottle of wine for the first time and any time after on shabbos?


Yes, there is no problem in using a corkscrew to remove a cork for the first time on Shabbos.

The reason for this is that the bottle is already a vessel from before Shabbos, and the removal of the corkscrew does not make it into a vessel.

This is therefore not similar to forbidden actions of makeh be-patish, whereby a vessel is completed by a particular act.

Best wishes.
