No one besides me uses the edge of a table/counter/etc and just hits the bottle top.

The knobs on dressers in hotel rooms are perfect for prying off bottle caps.

I doubt you do this to your own tables at home.

Just knock the top of the neck off on something hard. The internal pressure will forace any bits of glass to fly away from the bottle and you could probably, or maybe, drink it without worrying about swallowing glass.
