Back to the days of Napoleon, many victories were celebrated by decapitating bottles of bubbly with their swords. 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. A distinguishing feature, unlike a regular saber, is that the blade is not sharp. It makes an interesting gift for modern day Swashbucklers.
