Laguiole Olivewood Champagne Saber

The saber was the weapon of choice back then and the whole ritual of celebration has evolved today and is still used by some to open bottles of champagne. This impressive model has ablunt stainless steel blade, brass bolster, rivets and an inlaid Olivewood handle. Traditional Laguiole decor embosses the handle and bolster. Blade 11-3/8” long, overall, 16-3/8” long. (2-piece slide-top wooden box which is 17-1/2” L x 3-3/4” W).
