How well did the cork survive your hammer experiment. The biggest benefit of a corker is that it actually squeezes the cork inward, compressing it as it is pushed in to the bottle. This is because, to get a good seal, the cork must be larger then the opening. Just shoving a cork in often results in tearing or cracking of the cork.
