How To Sabre a Champagne Bottle

Did you know that you can open a bottle of Champagne with a sword?  In fact, the sword above is designed for exactly that.  It's easy if you know what you're doing, impossible if you don't, and looks cool when done correctly.  Hit the jump for more details and to learn the art of "sabrage."

Sabrage is the practice of opening a bottle of Champagne (or sparkling white wine if it’s not from France) using a short sword or sabre. It was made famous by Napoleon's cavalry.  It’s semi-dangerous, takes a certain skill and a certain culinary knowledge, and you get to use a weapon.  So, obviously, every man should not only know how to do this, but should be doing it on a weekly basis.   

You can buy the above sabre from legendary French knifemakers Laguiole for $200, and to be honest, the Champagne sabre market is pretty thin so you probably won’t find much better of a deal.
