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 can be ordered in multiple colors. The Signature Series palette includes, Tornado Red, Cobalt Blue, Herb Green, and Otter Black. The saber can also be ordered with our Classic cantilever stand or in exotic hardwood.

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 polymer. 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 polymer handle in one of four colors), a stained solid-ash 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.

    My wife and I purchased the Champagne Saber for her father as a special gift. We were searching for a gift with a story – something to create an experience and a lasting memory for the man that has everything. Learning how the saber is made with perfecting craftsmanship made it all the more special, and I insisted on “testing” it for ourselves first before presenting it to my father-in-law. I’d have to say it is an exhilarating experience opening a champagne bottle with a saber. It feels as great as it looks and the weight and balance are what you would expect from a custom product. A big thanks to Tool Couture for creating such an incredible experience for us. Your service is excellent and we can’t wait to deliver this very special gift.

    This is an amazing tool to open champagne with. We had the saber at my wife and mine 50th birthday party. Everyone loved opening champagne with the saber. Make sure you have enough champagne you will want to open them all!!!

    Amazing quality, cool design. I demonstrated sabering a bottle of champagne in front of 500 guests, high pressure to succeed on first attempt, and your saber worked flawlessly. I appreciate your attention to detail and superb workmanship.

    I purchased a gorgeous saber & opener for my husband. It is a unique gift that will be a part of many celebrations to come!! Cheers!!

    Drinking Champagne is best when celebrating. There is nothing better than celebrating a great bottle with more flare than opening it with a saber. There are no Champagne sabers with more flare than the Tool Couture. It is extremely well built and well balanced and it makes a great showpiece for any wine collection. Have fun and be safe!

    I received a saber and stand as a gift earlier this year… it’s fun to use, feels and looks like real craftsmanship, and is a great conversation piece with friends.

    I was given a Champagne Saber & Stand (Otter black) as a gift at a small group event. It is the most unique gift I’ve ever received, and I was apprehensive because I had never used one before. My concern went away as soon as we started to open bottles…it is easy! It looks so exotic and cool to open a champagne bottle with a saber, and it worked every time. What a great gift!

    Tool Culture has created a unique, functional product that helps usher in life long memories. My wife and I commissioned a saber for my son who recently became a US Marine. For his graduation we presented him with a custom red and gold saber embossed with the US Marine Corps famous anchor, globe and eagle on the blade. Simply a fantastic piece of art and a forever time piece to mark the moment and hand down for generations to come. Thank you Rolf for such an amazing gift to share!

    Since ordering a saber as a gift a few months ago I have since ordered several other pieces from Tool Couture as corporate gifts and awards. Beyond the fantastic art and workmanship of the tools I have been most impressed with the fun and seamless experience of designing and creating unique gifts with Tool Couture. Your team is easy and enjoyable to work with and you always deliver on schedule and as promised. I have yet to not have my expectations exceeded.
