The saber is a very original way to open champagne bottles .This was a tradition of the Napoleonic age and the saber was used by soldiers to celebrate war victories; the saber was used to “behead” the bottles and this method was called “sabrage”. The “sabrage” blade doesn’t need to be sharpened because it has to hit the glass of the bottle. It is necessary pouring the blade on the bottle and hitting the bottle neck decisively. The break of the bottle neck must be clear so there will not be splinters because they will be shot by the gas that comes out with a very high pressure .
The Saladini’s sabrage saber makes this method fine and special, thanks to the handcrafted work and the priceless engravings on the steel heads. The handle can be made of olive wood and on request it can be made of ox horn, buffalo horn and other kinds of wood .
