When it comes time to crack open a bottle of something sparkling, the last thing you want to do is let the moment pass you by quietly. Commemorate the occasion with a bit of much-needed showmanship with this gorgeous sabre by Lamami, Italian makers of exceptional cutlery. Coming in at six-and-a-half inches in length, the blade’s got a healthy weight to it, made of robust stainless steel that’ll have no trouble lopping the top off a bottle. It’s also got a built-in finger guard to protect your digits from collateral damage, and a robust, rivet-attached olive wood grip that’ll look great for years to come, given you hand wash only and never let the sabre soak in the sink. Display this thing proudly behind your bar, break it out for weddings, anniversaries, graduations, or particularly lively post-work happy hours, and show your fellow revelers what celebrating really looks like.
So how does this work exactly? Well first, grab a bottle of bubbly, strip off the foil and cage up at the top, and hold it at a slant pointed away from any unsuspecting, unhelmeted bystanders. Next, find the seam of the bottle, rest the blade on it at a 30-degree angle, and then slide the sabre smoothly but firmly down the bottle, following through as it cracks off the ring of glass around the cork and sends it soaring. Now isn’t that better than how you used to do it?
