Sabrage is a technique for opening a champagne bottle with a saber, used for ceremonial occasions. The force of the blunt blade hitting the lip breaks the glass to separate the collar from the neck of the bottle.A tradition that is finding its way into weddings feasts, parties, and formal dinner is that of beheading a bottle of champagne with a sabre specially made for the occasions. Begun as a means of showing off their skill on horseback, the hussards under Napoleon's command celebrated their victories by "sabring" off the top of the bottle of champagne.Sword size: 45cm L x 4cm W Box size: 50cm L x 15cm W x 6cm H
