Sabrage, or the opening of a champagne bottle using a saber, used for ceremonial occasions it dates back to Napoleon times.
It originated in France, after the French Revolution, when Napoleon and his army enjoyed victories all throughout Europe.
This meant that they could often be found celebrating with bottles of champagne, which Napoleon himself was particularly partial to!
The Hussars, Napoleon’s light cavalry, took to using their sabers to open champagne bottles after victories. It was a rousing start to many parties and a grandiose way to toast their leader.
This “Sabre-Briquet”, is hand Crafted on the same model used by soldiers and officers of the Imperial Guard in the Napoleonic infantry. Our supplier is one of the remaining French jewels of fencing weapons. Today they are still providing Sabers to  French Military officers of all corps as well as the French Ministry of Defence and Ministry of the Interior.
