The Champagne saber, this one by Laguiole, is a tradition going back to Napoleon's army where young officers used to open Champagne bottles with the back of their sword to impress the ladies. Today, the tradition is kept alive by wine enthusiasts like you and I!
The handle is made of durable stamina wood. The blade is dull and thick enough to allow using both sides (back or edge) of the saber to open the bottle.
How to saber a bottle of Champagne?
Simply hold the knife loosely, with your thumb well planted at the top of the junction between handle and blade. In a single smooth motion, slide the blade along the seam of the bottle until it strikes the neck. Any and all glass debris will be ejected by the pressurized content of the bottle.
Remember: the colder the bottle, the easier it is to saber. Make sure to test your technique in a safe environment first, always responsibly. There's nothing wrong with practicing on a few bottles of Prosecco before beheading a good Champagne!
Laguiole is a world famous French company, known for its high-quality products, principally for its iconic knives. Laguiole knives are often copied, but never matched. Every piece is made with oustanding materials, from the tip of the blade to the handle. A true tradition of excellence.
