"If a sabre's too much, you're too young"
One piece of polished, stainless steel flamboyance, for opening up a bottle of bubbly the flashy way. Made by an equally flamboyant designer, the Champagne Sabre by Karim Rashid is sure to impress at dinner parties. Here’s hoping for delightfully extravagant champagne experiences!
The Champagne Sabre is designed for opening champagne bottles swiftly and extravagantly. Aim towards where the vertical seam of the bottle meets the top lip of the bottle, and strike away from the base. The normal pressure inside the bottle automatically ensures that no glass shards contaminate the champagne.
The champagne will rush out just like when a cork is removed, so be ready to pour!
