Sure, any jackass can sabre open a bottle of Champagne with a kitchen knife. But if I'm going to try that, I may as well just lay my fingers on the sidewalk and chop them off. Save bloodying up my mama's kitchen and wasting a good bottle of bubbles. We aren't all fancy pants bartenders/Napoleonic soldiers like this guy.
Menu's Champagne Sabre was designed by Karim Rashid for your average New Year's Eve partygoer and showboating yahoo. It features a large, curvy body and, most importantly, a blunt edge. Kind of like the baseball bat or ladies' self-pleasure toy of flashy bottle openers. It's made of a single piece of polished stainless steel that, should you wield it correctly, will hack off a Champagne bottle's entire neck in one clean, elegant swipe.
Should you wield it incorrectly, I'd like to propose a toast: To 2015 and drinking fizzy shards of glass, my friends!
