Corkscrews are used to remove corks from wine bottles and have evolved over the years. Traditional corkscrews would normally consist of a wooden handle and a worm. The corkscrews worm is the pointed metallic helix that attaches to the wooden handle and screws into the cork. Once the corkscrew has been firmly inserted into the cork a vertical pull releases the cork from the wine bottle freeing the wine for your enjoyment.
