How to Saber a Champagne Bottle

Opening a bottle of champagne always puts people in a festive mood. Sabering a bottle of champagne takes your party to the next level. Remember, BE CAREFUL!. Jamie is a trained professional. DO NOT POINT THE BOTTLE AT ANYONE! You are creating a projectile that could seriously harm someone. We just want to you to have fun.

How to Saber a Champagne Bottle

Remove foil from bottle and leave cage intact. Locate the seem on the bottle and face toward the ceiling while pointing the bottle away from your body. With a forceful motion, slide your knife, sword or flat blunt tool across the seem making contact with the mouth of the bottle. With enough force, the mouth should separate from the neck with ease. DO NOT DRINK FROM THE BOTTLE! The broken edge is razor sharp!

Great seeing you again!

Quick question…wouldn’t there be a danger of having glass shards in the bottle?

There will be no shards in the bottle as what is happening is the top is being blown off by the pressure of the Champagne and not the force of your blade back. It takes very little force if your bottle is cold. I’ve even “sabered” a bottle with the base of a wine glass, it takes that little pressure!

Great work Jamie!
I have a question:
Is this possible also with a normal beer, I mean; broke the bottle top without shards in the bottle? I know it’s very easy to broke it, is there any possibility that some shards remain inside?
Thanks a lot. I really appreciate your professionality. Greetings from Croatia!
