Ideal for any yacht galley, keep the most indulgent traditions alive with this selection of luxury champagne sabres
Sabrage, the art of sabering a bottle of fine champagne, traces its origins to the celebrations of victorious cavalry during the Napoleonic wars, but you can give the tradition a contemporary edge with these striking sabres.
Palace Champagne Sabre
With a bold, contemporary design, the stylish champagne sabres of Italian producer Palace add a modern aesthetic and exceptional ergonomics to a timeless tradition. Weighing three pounds, the 22-inch long sabre (above) is perfectly balanced and crafted in stainless steel with a hand-polished mirror-like finish. The sabre is available in onyx, silver and yes, champagne, and is presented in a stylish case milled from solid wood.
Menu Champagne Sabre by Karim Rashid
Organic in its lines, timeless in its design, the Menu Champagne Sabre created by enigmatic New York-based designer Karim Rashid is as eye-catching as it is functional. One fluid piece of polished stainless steel, weighing in just over a pound, the sabre is perfectly balanced. Its carefully rounded edges make it a safer option on the open seas while making easy work of the most resilient of vintages.
Indulgence Champagne Sabre by Georg Jensen
Another fluid form, the Indulgence Champagne Sabre from Denmark design brand Georg Jensen also features a blunted blade, making it more visual than lethal. However, the sabre, created by designer Helle Damkjaer as part of the brand’s Indulgence collection, hides functionality behind its flawless beauty, with a comfortable grip accentuating its mirrored surface.
