I bought this saber and a case of sparkling wine (because I never sabered a champagne, I figured I'd mess it up the first few times). I posted the picture of the saber in the display case, with the white gloves for effect, on Facebook. Then, my once-a-year buddy, who happens to throw the "Key West Food and Wine Fest" (yearly, last week in January), saw it and said "Bring it!"
I said I was flying and I don't think the airlines would look kindly upon a saber! I said I'll pay for it, here is the site and you can even have it engraved. So he did. When I got there, I asked him if he got it and he said "Yes!" and without missing a beat, he said you need to saber a champagne, in front of the whole crowd. I am like, oh no, I didn't practice, this is gonna be embarrassing if I goof. Too bad I can't post pictures in the review!
Luckily, it went off without a hitch and it went perfectly! So 5 stars twice, one for mine (which still has not met the bottle), and one for "Key West Food and Wine Fest"!
