One of those interesting finds includes a fine example of a Lund Lever, an old model dating back to the s. The corkscrew comprises two parts: first, the worm the actual screw mechanism is inserted into the cork; next, a pair of pliers is hooked through the worm hole and squeezed together — and out pops the cork.
It was when I noticed the head was loose, concealing the worm, that I realised it would be perfect for my collection. Shaped like a bear, the worm is covered by a rod, so that at first it looks anything but functional.

Uncorking a bottle of wine presents a challenge. There is no way to grip the cork, which is completely recessed in the bottle’s neck. Furthermore, pulling the cork out requires a force of lb N , depending on whether the cork is moist or dry from the bottle being stored on its side or upright, respectively. A corkscrew is an implement designed to mechanically remove the cork.
It consists of a handle and a helical or screw-like blade that is commonly called a worm. A corkscrew without a center post is actually a helix, with all the coils having the same radius; however, it is often called a spiral, even though that term technically means a curve with a constantly changing radius. Screwing the worm through the center of the cork allows the corkscrew to grip the cork internally.
Pulling on the handle draws both the corkscrew and the cork out of the bottle. Some corkscrews employ levers, springs, gears, or other mechanical devices to lessen the amount of force needed to pull out the cork. Corks were used to seal bottles in the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations.
