This was such a unique gift to give my friend for Christmas. She loved it & the complimentary gloves were great too. The box, the details, everything was immaculate
Arrived as expected. Storage box nicer than expected. Engraving as requested. Very satisfied with purchase.
Got this as a Christmas gift for my dad and it has been the hit of every holiday party this season. Haven’t seen this much enthusiasm for a Christmas gift in a while so yea…nailed it this year.
The Sabre I received is a little different than pictured. The handle was all black with no gold and the red ribbon part was black. It’s different than pictured. I also don’t like the stand it came with that is different than pictured above. The Sabre is on an angle and it doesn’t look good I will have to purchase a different stand elsewhere. They shipped it right away which was nice. Shipping and duties were almost $200 CDN so it really added up if you’re ordering from Canada. Overall I am happy with it, I just wish I got exactly what was pictured.
My sister was equally apprehensive as she was excited about her first ever try at sabring. This blade, and proper bottle prep, did all the work and made her and our families’ magical holiday moment of 2022. When done she was as joyous as a 5 year old. Best gift! Great Sabre!!!
Shipping was fast, no complaints there. Box came undamaged and with sufficient protection. However, once I opened it, I noticed a decent amount of flaws. First, one of the clasps on the box was broken and the other one isn't tight enough to keep it closed. It's fine just sitting there, but a little jiggling or movement, and the clasp flips open.
Second, on initial inspection, there was a smudge stain on the handle I couldn't get off, as well as a dent on the guard. This was all noticed in the first 30 seconds.
Knowing these issues, I looked closely at the rest of it and saw the butt was scratched and finish poorly done with a spot of rust already on it. The blade has minor scratches on it as well. There's a fraying white leather piece where the blade and handle meet which makes the whole thing look cheaper. I can only assume it's meant to hide how not-flush the blade inserts into the handle. Might take that off, but can't tell if the leather or seam look better.
Other than these issues, the box looks very nice, the size and weight of the sabre is good, and the string (albeit a bit long) adds a nice touch. None of the issues completely ruin the sabre, but I expected a little better aesthetics for such a flashy tool.
Saw this opener at a friend's house and was impressed, so I ordered one. Very pleased. No cheap plastic, good design and quality build, works well.
These are amazing! Such great quality! We’ve bought these for wedding gifts and everyone loves them!
I can’t tell you how excited my friend was to receive this gift. She thought it was awesome, well made, and looks great displayed in her home bar. She is already practicing her saber skills! Thank you!
Wrapping was very nice. Recipient loves it and is delighted with the engravings on both sides. Perfect silly but cool gift. Goal: drink more champagne.
This is the 3rd sabre we purchased as a gift. We are as thrilled to give this as the recipients are thrilled to receive it. Customer service is incredible. A representative even called to verify the inscription.
This is the fourth or fifth sabre I have bought as a gift. It is always done so nicely and delivered so quickly. The quality and attention to detail on the sabres is beautiful.
This was exactly what I was looking for. It’s perfect for our wine and champagne-loving friends. Very heavy, beautifully made!
My second purchase! Always excellent service, super fast engraving and shipping and a high quality product! Such an impressive gift for a special occasion.
I purchased this for my fiancé as a wedding gift. The sabre and engraving is beautiful. Frank was extremely responsive and upgraded me to 2 day shipping to ensure it arrived in time. Highly recommend his services!
I purchased this as a gift for my sister’s wedding. It was exactly as pictured, engraving done beautifully and shipping was very efficient! Very happy with product and service!
It's been my go-to wedding gift this year for my son's different friends. They ALL love it! My son, not so much since he was the only one of his buds that knew how to open a champagne bottle w/a saber. Great gift. Not the average wedding present. This particular saber arrives beautifully boxed and looks fabulous sitting on the bar in its pedestal.
Quick delivery, beautiful wrapping, and fantastic customer service as well!
Our custom engraved sabre arrived at our door in just a few days and looks more than amazing.
It is a gift for a great friend that I hope gets me the same thing for my birthday.
Thank you Sonoma Champagne Series for being responsive and sending a high quality piece of art! my husband received as a birthday gift (along with Sabrage lessons), and the piece is beautiful. High quality and much better than in pictures. Thank you!
