How to Open Champagne...With a Sword

Let's face it, kids...Valentine's Day is on its way, and if things go right you'll probably be opening a bottle of the bubbly. What better way to impress the object of your affection than by opening them a bottle of champagne...with a sword? The technique, apparently called "sabering" looks pretty simple, and is WAY impressive.

Just make sure you alert your flame somewhere between pulling out the champagne bottle and drawing a sword, to keep them from thinking you're about to perform seppuku or engage in murder/suicide. We're not the most romantic guys on the Web, but we think that might kind of spoil the glow of the evening.

Great idea for a video, but astoundingly poorly executed. What he's explaining doing is off camera for the better part. I mean I get removing foil, not a problem there. But when he's talking about finding the seam, and taking practice runs, there's no close up illustrating the seam, and all but the last practice run or two are off camera. Given the half-assed production up to that point I'm not surprised, but still disappointed in a lack of slow motion replay of the actual opening. Which, aside from being entertaining, would've given us more insight into angle, point of impact, and expected result.

Good post on the blog, but surely there's a better video out there?
