Recently, while on holiday, my fiancé decided to propose on the gorgeous island of Tortola in the BVI.  With champagne in hand, I had always wanted to "saber" a moment, and this one could not have been more perfect!  

Of course, I had remembered word-for-word an article in Nantucket Magazine last summer "How to Saber a Champagne Bottle".  

With such luck (and ninja-like skill), I got it on my first try!  I thought, this trick is too good not to share!  

So enjoy, and let us know your experience!

Step Two: 

Every bottle should have 1-2 seams that run lengthwise.  Find one, and use that as the "runway" for your knife or saber.

Step Three: 

One of the secrets to this trick is to use the spine or thicker dull end of your knife when sabering your bottle.

Step 4: 

Don't hesitate!  Hold the back end of your knife against the glass (middle of the bottle), use that seam (step 2) as your "runway", and follow through to the top.  The glass should cut like butter granting you a new skill to show off at your next holiday party!
