Hold the bottle firmly by the bottom in one hand with your thumb well ensconced in the base, cork pointing skywards. Tilt it at a 45-60 degree angle. Finally, pick up your sabre, preferably a short-bladed one, use the blunt edge of the sabre. Practise with the precise strike of the blade against the flange in a wide, open space away from unprotected eyes!
4. Flute sabring
Holding the flute by the stem, place it at 90° to the neck of the bottle prepared in advance, as usual, strike the wire with a firm stroke. Practise in case you break the glass and not the bottle.
