U can tie the wire around the bottle where U want to cut it, then put the bottle into the flame, wait until the wire turn red, then U can remove the upper part of the bottle (of course, U MUST use the gloves to touch the bottle to avoid a burn and DO NOT put the stopper into the mouth of bottle to avoid a bomb ;-)). Good luck. Bonhe

Dear Mike: I would hate to see you damage your nice bottle or your nice face so go to the link below for more information and whatever method you try experiment on a non valuable bottle first, you only have one face so be careful.

Here is a link that might be useful: bottle cutting

Mike: you can hold off on the kisses for as long as you want but if you have another sake bottle that needs emptying I can help with that.I have not seen anything from you at Nachodaddies place yet BTW.

I talked with nachodaddy and he set me pass word but can't post some how. I am still studying Buddhism and Japanese history to understand Japanese garden. I have many things to study beside Japanese history,Buddhism.
I will speak to him again..................yama
