HOW TO USE A BAR BLADE
Bar Blades have been around in the States for years now and here is how to use a bar blade ….having been used mainly in flair competitions. They go under the names Speed Opener, Mamba, Popper and of course Bar Blade. They have now made their entrance to the UK along with flairing which is a very popular hobby with bartenders and a growing sport.
The Legends of Bartending World Champions
In the UK competitions are not as common as yet but they are sure to grow in popularity. BarBlading is a small part of a flair bartender’s routine they use it to do a number of things that impresses the crowd. But the reason I use one behind the bar is that it is so much faster than using any other bottle opener, and it impresses the customer.
I walked in to a bar a while ago and ordered two bottles of beer and the bartender was very polite, he got the bottles one in each hand turned towards me and my friend bent down and opened them on the fixed opener that was under the bar. This was ok I got my drink but I was not impressed.
Now had the bartender had a Bar Blade he could have taken the 2 bottles in one hand and opened them using the popping method. This method makes a loud pop noise when opening a bottle and amazes the customer. I have had so many people ask “what is that?” or “how do you make it pop?” They love it. It creates more interaction and therefore increase the possibility of tips. It will make you a faster bartender and therefore increase your total on the till and clear the bar quicker. This helps people get served quicker therefore increasing sales and I’m sure your boss will be happy with that, mine was.
