Sabrage sword L'Ussaro sul Tetto: With this straightforward motivation, Napoleon Bonaparte called for the use of Champagne is his European campaigns, and of course his officers immediately agreed. This is why - we are told - the Hussars, the French light cavalry which played such  a part in those historical times, invented a quick method for opening Champagne bottles, known as "Sabrage": a determined sabre blow just under the bottle neck. The six atmospheres inside the bottle would throw out the cork and the end of the bottle without letting any piece of glass get inside.
The surface finish of the blade is mirrored by hand. Produced completely  by hand in small quantities, the crafstmen  who start them finish them: on each blade you will find the initials of the craftsman who made them. The heat treatment also includes under-cooling at -80 ° C in order to guarantee maximum capacity and duration of the cut. Folding knives, even when made with Plexiglas handles cannot be washed  in the dishwasher. It is advisable to clean with a damp cloth or if it is necessary to wash by hand with water  (max. 40 ° C). Dry it carefully and immediately after cleaning. Please consider as follows:
1. The dishwasher quickly ages any object washed in it.
2.  The higher the quality, the less the blade will be stainless
3. the blades may stain with small reddish spots or with large bluish halos:
a. if left to drain or dry in the dishwasher
b. if left dirty for a long time after use
c. if the the water is rich in iron
4. a good hand wash and a careful drying after washing are the secret to keep your knives at their best.
5. hand wash and immediate drying are MANDATORY for knives with horn handles, wood or other natural materials.
6. Do not wash with aggressive detergents or water at temperatures above 60 ° C.
