Is that the same one David Lynch used last time I saw him open a bottle of Chardy?

Hi Teru, for what is the knife part of the device?

Neal, I advise you to choose the wooden (oak) tap for better taste.

Please, all you need is a drunk French friend, always handy in a pinch:

No J-F, you do NOT need a larger knife.
You can open a bottle of champagne with a pocket knife
A Buck is fine for the job!!

Actually you can do it with just about anything if you strike the lip at the right angle.

Oliver, I thought the French say that the cork should not explode off the Champagne bottle but should be removed with a technique allowing it to make the sound of an erotic sigh.

Barry, AFAIK it is the Napoleon’s hussards (FR calvalry soldiers) who made “sabrer le champagne” fashionable to impress the ladies.
Now, another French expression for a rough quickie is “prendre une femme à la Hussarde” (no time to take those cavalry boots off).
Put the two together, and you’ll see that they are not far apart. This is the zero foreplay version of champagne opening. Just wham bam thank you maam!!
Erotic sigh some other time!

Olivier,
if you use “un couteau”, then it is not “sabrer le Champagne”. Wouldn’t the term be more like “couteauner le Champagne”? ;-)

In any case it’s good to know that Bubblies can be uncorked with a pocket knife, a hatchet or anything hard. Still the saber adds a certain cachet.

“Erotic sigh some other time!” Good point.

Cheers.

Go Tommy! That may not protect you from the bad-asses, but it might win them over. I can remember many times in my life when the most important person in the room was the person with the church key…

LOL Tommy, so can you open it in the approved flickety-flick fashion? I used to be able to do that once my Leatherman tool had loosened up …

But Wayne, for $58.70 you could buy a regular flashlight and a pretty good Bordeaux or a lot of cheap beer.

In a barroom brawl, this is the flashlight for ME!

To Neal and Barry,

The 180 lumens output in my flashlight isn’t just meant to illuminate. Have you ever had one of these suckers flashed in your face? Instant flashbang. It’s the unspoken secondary purpose of these little gems. But yea, I’d take a 6-D maglite over mine in a barroom brawl!

Actually, the multicell flashlight reminds me of my first job at a paper in North Carolina. My beat included covering the Ku Klux Klan, then active, and I made several forays into Klan rallys (complete with cross-burnings and racial harangues by the Grand Kleagle). I just remember that while I was there I was “escorted” by several Klan security people (actually several old, gnarled, rednecks in storm trooper outfits).

This is relevant because the only weapon they carried were multicell flashlights, inserted into billy-club holders on their belts. I never saw them used as clubs, but the threat was always there. They may have been nervous because a few years earlier a Klan rally had been attacked on foot by a band of Lumbee Indians and had been sent fleeing in fear through the North Carolina woods. Sadly, no photographers were there to capture those precious moments. It was the nadir of the Klan in North Carolina.

Hey Barry, I thought was Edgar Hoover using lenses to confuse.

Barry, I am shocked. How can anyone not recognize Carrie A. Nation, scourge of the saloon?

by Akaky | 16 Nov 2009 16:11 | New York , United States | | Report spam→
Well, I knew it wasn’t J. Edgar Hoover because he looked much prettier in a dress. But are you saying, Akaky, that it was Carrie Nation who was responsible for dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Did she think they were drinking too much sake?
