Ha! I wondered what happened to that. Good thing one of your dogs didn't get to it first.
My wife likes plain ol' Tosti Asti, and I always wondered why the glass bottle had that little dimple on the front at the base of the neck. Now that you're video has taught me to look for the seam in the glass, I know that the dimple is the perfect spot to place your thumb when sabering. Can't wait to try this out! Thanks again.
Somebody asked me privately if it matters whether the Champagne bottle's glass is green, clear, or black, etc...
No, it does not. Sabering may still be done. (Though it is MIGHTY hard to SEE the "seam," which is what you need to follow to properly open it up with your sword, when the glass is clear, and sometimes even on various brands of bubbly where the seem isn't all that pronounced regardless of the glass's color).
However, you CAN do this, with any cold bottle of Champagne and with a heavy KITCHEN KNIFE at home, (using the blunt side only, as I explain in the video posted some weeks back in this thread), and so here's some extra photos of some random sabering times, as to show you different glass etc., and it done with a saber and with a knife. Both do work!
Therefore, with New Year's right around the corner, you CAN easily do this if you wish, with your tool of choice (professional Champagne saber or kitchen knife) and with whichever brand and color of glass you choose, as well. So have some fun!
