How does Champagne sabrage work?
Champagne sabrage looks scary but is actually a fairly simple process whose success depends on lining up the blunt side of the blade with the seam of the bottle coupled with a confident strike.
Step 1: Completely remove the foil from the cage and neck but leave the wire in place.
Step 2: Hold the Champagne bottle with the cork facing away from you and with the glass seam, which runs the length of the bottle, uppermost and central.
Step 3: Rest the flat of the sabre blade on the shoulder of the bottle with the sharp edge directed away from the cork.
Step 4: In one swift, confident motion, move the sabre quickly up the bottleneck along the line of the seam, this will cause the back edge of the blade to make rapid contact with the bulge on the neck of the bottle - le point faible.
Success: The top of the neck and the cork are all headed over the garden fence, hopefully away from any living creatures or windows. Well done.
