I have a small collection of 20 or more older corkscrews I picked up over the years at antique markets, plus a wine case full of the weird, whacky and absurd novelty types.

One of the more unusual ones is a 1941 WWII issue pocket knife with corkscrew. On one side there are 13 notches cut into the handle which I was told could be the number of kills in battle the owner of the knife had, but I like to think of it as the number of bottles killed Smile

If I could ever figure out how to attach a photo I'd snap one and send.
I had great success for many years obtaining them from eBay auctions, usually from European sellers or collectors here in US. Now ICCA (International Corkscrew Collectors) has a quarterly auction that eliminates fakes for the most part and provides an amazing selection in a concentrated forum.....it has also led to prices escalating.
