MY COLLECTOR I am a “Pomelkophile” – a term derived from the Greek “poma”: cork, “elkein”: to pull, and “philo”: to love. I am, therefore, a lover of and a collector of corkscrews.My collection is not large, but it is interesting and I am constantly adding to it. Discover it on the following pages, which are organized in the same fashion as the book La folie des tire-bouchons” by Frédérique Crestin-Billet. You will find pages devoted to the Simple, Mechanical, Lever, Pocket, Multifunction, and Pub corkscrews.
