This gift was a Change of Command gift for out going Color Guard commander for a Patriotic Linage society. A retired US Navy Captain who once commanded the USS Constitution in Boston, MA. He had told me when he was married in Gibraltar during his Navy career that they opened the champagne bottles with swords. This gift totally caught him off guard and he was very impressed with.
I bought this saber and a case of sparkling wine (because I never sabered a champagne, I figured I'd mess it up the first few times). I posted the picture of the saber in the display case, with the white gloves for effect, on Facebook. Then, my once-a-year buddy, who happens to throw the "Key West Food and Wine Fest" (yearly, last week in January), saw it and said "Bring it!"
I said I was flying and I don't think the airlines would look kindly upon a saber! I said I'll pay for it, here is the site and you can even have it engraved. So he did. When I got there, I asked him if he got it and he said "Yes!" and without missing a beat, he said you need to saber a champagne, in front of the whole crowd. I am like, oh no, I didn't practice, this is gonna be embarrassing if I goof. Too bad I can't post pictures in the review!
Luckily, it went off without a hitch and it went perfectly! So 5 stars twice, one for mine (which still has not met the bottle), and one for "Key West Food and Wine Fest"!
I got this for our friends who are getting married with their last name and wedding date engraved on it. My order was processed so quickly and was shipped out the same day I ordered it- I was very surprised that it did. The Sabre itself is absolutely beautiful and I am so excited to give it to them. Would definitely get one for myself and my fiancé if we liked champagne more!!
Inspired to get a Sabre after our stay at the St Regis Goa resort. Beautiful and worked great for our New Year’s celebrations.
This is such a well made and Classic Sabre! Great weight but easy to handle. Beautiful engraving! Highly recommended!!
This Sabre is fantastically crafted and a conversation piece. Sabres you champagne effortlessly. Highly recommend.
We closed our Christmas gift opening with a surprise for my wife and what a surprise it was - she had previously done sabraging on a couple trips to Napa so I thought I’d give this to her. It was a total hit albeit our neighbors might have had some concerns with her wielding a sword opening champagne bottles!! The product is spectacular and everything went as smooth as the blade running dow the neck of the bottle
Thank you for making our 41st Christmas so special!
The sabre is balanced in the hand, carries that signature Laguiole look and is highly effective at opening champagne bottles. Beyond that, I had worked closely with both the Director of Customization and the owner of Sonoma Champagne Sabres to execute to perfection a specific engraving design. The end product looks and feels great and they were attentive and moved quickly to deliver on time. Thank you very much!
We customized one of these for our one of our clients with a logo. He was estatic. Great customer service and prompt delivery. Thank you!
I have purchased your saber last year for my best friends 50th birthday. When our best friends got married and had an epic light saber wedding dance, I just knew I had to buy one of your sabers for them as a gift. They LOVED it! Thank you so much for the memorable gift.
Really impressed by how quickly my Sabre was delivered, even though it was personalized. Blade got marred/chipped on the first use which was a little disappointing but otherwise great!
I purchased this with engraving as a gift for my fiance at our wedding. The engraving turned out great, and they were nice to provide me with proofs to make sure it was perfect. But I'm bummed because the saber I received actually has quite a few imperfections along the handle such as gapping where the wood and metal blade meet, and the blade not fitting flatly into the wood handle under the insect detail. Unfortunately I can't return because I got it engraved. I tried reaching out via email about this with no response. I recommend ordering yours without engraving in case you need to return for quality issues!
Hello, we appreciate your comments and understand your concern. We fully back all our products and services. This issue appears to be damage to the handle. Rarely does a blade disengraved from the handle. It may have beed 'rattled' in transport.
We will send you a replacement or refund your order. Our staff has been in touch and will continue to resolve this issue to your satisfaction. My apologies for this incident and the delay in resolving this matter.

Sonoma Sabers has quickly become one of our preferred vendors; their customer service is exceptional and the quality of their products is top notch.
My wife was blown away when I gifted her this sabre from a centuries-old German manufacturer. The sword is beautiful quality, heavy weight. The white gloves Sonoma Sabres includes are a nice touch that will add elegance to the theatre of popping bubbly with a sword.
The product, stand, box, gloves... this is an exceptional piece with wonderful value for the price! The Customer service cannot be overstated - the entire team took excellent care of me and I look forward to ordering again!
I purchased a Morgan King Sabotage Aficionado - Ruby Edition for my sommelier son as a wedding gift. He absolutely loved it and I also got to saber my first bottle of champagne. The saber is beautifully crafted and the engraving was top notch. Completely satified with the purchase.
Gave as a Christmas gift. The recipient loved it! This particular Sabre simple and elegant at the same time. And he loved the leather sheath that came with it.
I am super happy with my purchase. This thing has the perfect amount of weight for follow through. It also has been quite the conversation piece sitting on our back bar. Thanks again for all the fine attention to detail. Bravo, chef!!
