There’s now another way to uncork a bottle of Champagne with the new St. Regis Saber created by Christofle. This bespoke piece draws its inspiration from the legendary Napoléon Bonaparte, who is said to open champagne bottler with his saber.
And the art of sabering continues to be practiced around the globe at St. Regis hotels, where butlers saber bottles to celebrate guests’ milestones or christen new hotels. Eager to bring this spirit of celebration to a larger audience, St. Regis has partnered with historic Parisian silversmith Christofle to create the St. Regis Saber by Christofle, a bespoke saber with a sterling-silver handle and a stainless-steel blade.
Christofle designers drew inspiration for the handcrafted sabers by looking at archived photos of the landmark hotel St. Regis New York and three of the iconic hotel’s hallmarks were engraved on the handles.
Besides, those who purchase the saber will be invited to attend a hands-on lesson that is taught by St. Regis and explores the proper way to saber a Champagne bottle—ensuring that your celebrations are as safe as they are fun. The location of the class will be arranged when purchasing the saber, and pricing is available upon request.
