I read a book recently where a bottle of wine was opened using some type of tongs, heated charcoal, ice and... a feather.

OK, I get the first three. Heat the special tongs in charcoal, apply to circumference of bottle neck, dip neck in ice, bottle cracks where the tongs where, lift off top, voila!
But what is the feather for?
The book didn't give much detail of the process and all the above is assumed, as it makes sense, but the inclusion of the feather has me a bit stumped.
