Champagne sabres

A champagne sabre, or champagne sword, is a sabre used to open champagne bottles. Add personal engraving to create a perfect gift for the champagne ethusiast or sommelier! The history of the champagne sabre and sabering champagne starts in 19th century France. It was after the French revolution and the saber was the weapon of choice of Napoleon's light cavalry.

Napoleon's many victorious battles across the continent were good reasons to celebrate. During these celebrations the cavalry men would open champagne bottles with their sabers. Napoleon is actually known to have said; "Champagne! In victory one deserves it; in defeat one needs it." which definitely would have encouraged this behaviour.

The modern champagne sabre is, however, specifically made for sabering champagne, not for battle. The blade is blunt - a sharpened edge is unnecessary because in sabrage it is the impact that matters.
