Holiday Gift Idea: Champagne Saber
Celebrate good times with alcohol and sharp objects!
Did you know there’s a name for the act of opening a bottle of champagne with a sword? It’s called “sabrage,” and it started with Napoleon.
These days, few people have swords on-hand to pop corks, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate in style. Laguiole en Aubrac offers a variety of blades specifically designed so you can pop your cork with ease and flair:
Single blade piece made of stainless Sanvik 12C27, a martensitic stainless chromium steel. The composition of carbon and chromium gives a unique combination of properties including: very high hardness, very high wear resistance and corrosion resistant
