The tradition of Sabrage became popular in France when Napoleons army visited many to the aristocratic domains. The sabre was the weapon of choice for his light cavalry. To celebrate their many victories they would open the Champagne with their sabres. This Mathusalem Sommelier sabre allows this tradition to live on with the most dramatic and exciting gesture in the wine service. Supplied in a wooden presentation box.
