A “Dictionary of Corkscrew Technique” and a “Classification of Corkscrew Systems» in four languages has been created by Hans J. Türler

I can only recommend you to explore his website by typing

It is really the mechanical system that prevails because it authorizes, in a quite simple way, to determine in which category your corkscrew belongs (i.e. mechanical corkscrews with worm, single lever corkscrews, side lever corkscrews…)

But we can also take into account their purpose (decorative, work of art, commercial support…) or also in regard of their dimension which can be between 1,5cm and 50cm! We will proceed with a somewhat succinct classification: from miniatures to giants, through mid-size and ordinary corkscrews that we are commonly using.

Another possible way of classification is also to be taken into account: the category of the corkscrew depends on the type of material used: wood (rosewood, mahogany, wild cherry…) steel, brass, horn, silver, pewter, bone, gold and many others…

You don’t absolutely need to classify your corkscrews following their category. Presenting your corkscrews in a heterogeneous way is often very nice to look at.

It’s up to you…
