Tool Couture’s champagne saber is the first production champagne saber ever designed and made in the United States. This semi-custom handcrafted tool and matching stand come in a beautiful interplay of exotic hardwood and steel. The saber is also available with a colored polymer handle in our Signature Series or our Classic Series with a cantilever stand.

William Belickis Chef / Owner of Seattle’s acclaimed Mistral Kitchen believes it to be the best production champagne saber in the world. Sabering tableside is a nightly event at his restaurant. The saber’s design, balance, and leading edge geometry allow experts like William and beginners alike, to use this luxury tool with confidence and ease.

The saber was specifically designed to do one thing exceptionally well: open bottles of champagne. It took 18 months of research and development to perfect. Every element of this exotic kitchen / bar tool is intentional. The blade for example is made of 5160 Carbon Steel. It was selected for its resilient elastic characteristics. It is hardened and tempered specifically for striking glass.

This saber is built to withstand centuries of use and is naturally regarded as an heirloom quality artifact. Total cost of ownership is conservatively calculated at $2.00 a year. However, with proper care, the saber’s useful life will likely be much longer than a mere 1,000 years.

18 handmade custom jigs are used to fabricate the saber. The guard and pommel are black-oxide finished stainless steel. The handle is a multi-tapered, dense, exotic hardwood. The guard is tapered by hand, and formed by cold pressing, blacksmithing, and modern welding. There are no pins or nails of any kind holding the saber together. The unique central shaft fastening system used to assemble the saber creates a tool that feels supremely integrated.

The saber weighs 2.75 lbs., and is perfectly balanced; placing the ideal strike zone, or sweet spot, 1-2 inches in front of the guard. Its balance point is located right behind the guard. And its blade is finished naturally tumbled, or tumbled with a black-oxide finish.

As a corporate, wedding, or personal gift, the blade can be electrostatically etched to feature branding or custom messaging.

Your purchase includes the saber (with a multi-tapered exotic hardwood handle), an exotic wood and steel display stand, and a hand-crafted presentation box.


Sabering a bottle of champagne is like driving a car. There’s an inherent element of risk associated with both activities. But like driving, if you prepare and approach the task with knowledge, due care, and the proper safety precautions in place, you’ll significantly mitigate your risk, and you will likely be part of that overwhelming majority of people who saber and drive without ever getting seriously hurt. But, because it is possible to get injured while sabering, we have prepared this writing in an effort to share our knowledge on how to avoid injuries. People have been assuming the risk of sabering champagne bottles since about 1795. And we’ve learned a few things since then that have helped us stay safe along the way.

If you buy, receive, and/or subsequently use a champagne saber, caveat emptor, (buyer beware and user beware), you assume 100% of the risk associated with its use. Accordingly, educate yourself and learn how to saber safely.

The risk is understood by appreciating that glass, (even in solid form) is inherently unstable, and thus, unpredictable. By way of example, a bottle of champagne will explode in unpredictable directions if dropped on a hard surface; like a stone floor. The same can occur when a bottle of champagne, or sparkling wine is struck with a champagne saber – But there are reasons for this occurrence. We do not believe that explosions are random or subject to the roll of the dice. Explosions are predictable.

The danger, (should a bottle explode while sabering) results from the potential insult received by the human body if hit by sharp shards of glass flying through the air, at high speed, in random directions. Glass cuts can lead to serious injury and permanent disfigurement.

    The exotic wood version of the Champagne Saber is a master crafted work of art from people who clearly take pride in their products and design elements!

  3. Jenn

    I absolutely love my saber! It’s not just an awesome tool to have on hand for the bubbles aficionado, but it’s also a beautiful work of art just on its own.

  4. Clayton Smith

    One of the finest examples of modern day craftsmanship in old world style. The fact that it is made here in the U.S. makes it even more appealing. It has sparked amazing conversations and looks remarkable on my mantle. Forget that it is also a functional piece of art work. Sabering with it has turned the normal dinner party into a visual spectacle that has everybody wanting to try. I am only sorry that my Champagne supply can not keep up with the demand for using the saber.
