This wine thief is made of high durability plastic and consists of three pieces interlocked together into one unit that measures approximately 18″ in length and is approximately one onch in diameter. The middle section can be removed to shorten it for convenience when working in cramped quarters. 3 piece construction also allows for easier sanitizing. It will fit comfortably into most bung holes and other containers when sampling wine, must, or beer. Unbreakable. Handle helps prevent slippage and protects knuckles in wine thief duels.
