The experienced sommelier can open a bottle with little loss of Champagne. However, we advise you to allow a small flow to wash away any loose shards of glass that may be adhering to the neck. The first glass poured should also be checked for small glass shards.
The Indulgence Champagne saber is made out of mirror-polished stainless steel. Its blade is completely blunt, it is the impact of the saber that opens the bottle, not the sharpness.
NOTE: Keep the saber and decapitated bottles away from children and animals. Please handle bottles and shards with utmost care, and never drink from a bottle opened with a saber.
