Luxury brand Henry Tuke has launched their new Champagne sabre in the breathtaking gardens at the historic cellars of Champagne house Canard-Duchêne in Ludes near Rheims, France.
Guests at the event witnessed the founder of Henry Tuke, Tom Tuke-Hastings smash the World Record, by sabering 35 bottles of Canard-Duchêne’s Cuvée Léonie in one minute. (The current record stands at 27 bottles in one minute, world record to be verified by Guinness World Records).
Founded on the principle that ‘Good enough, is simply not good enough’, the Henry Tuke Champagne Sabre is hand forged from stainless Damascus steel in England and has solid sterling silver fittings (hallmarked London) and a shagreen grip. Even the stand is special, with the base made out of ancient oak reclaimed from the original Roman docks in London and dendrochronologically dated to 70AD.
The sabre retails for £27,000 and is available from select stockists and direct from Henry Tuke: www.HenryTuke.com.
