ACCOUT&P #40422 SS Officer's Degen Portepee

This SS Officer's Degen Portepee is in choice, mint condition, still having the original string tied around the center of the strapping.

The strapping is beautiful aluminum bullion with a textured center. It is decorated with twin white lines that run the length. The slide is of thicker woven bullion. Beneath the slide is the rounded stem, marked with black SS runes in a circle on both sides. The oval bull ball remains in perfect condition, with a stuffing that matches the textured strapping.

A wonderful knot here and a perfect addition to a clean SS Officer's Degen.

Mint. $1,295.00

ACCOUT&P #40421 SS "NCO's Degen" Portepee

This SS "NCO's Degen" Portepee is the rarest of the SS knots. I'm using quotes here because, as with so many things in this hobby, this designation is something of a misnomer. What we can say for certain is that these are ultra-rare and extremely desirable.

In my SS Book I show these knots being worn on bayonets carried by members of the Führerschule der Seicherheitspolizei. I firmly believe these knots were worn by the Seicherheitsdeinst and that is why we see so few of them. I also show an SS man wearing one of these knots on a Model 1933 bayonet, on page 620.

This example has excellent strapping, constructed of woven black cloth decorated with twin white lines that run the length. The slide is woven of thicker black cord. The stem is rounded on both sides and off-white in color, marked with SS runes in a circle on both sides. The cap of the ball is woven in black while the ball itself is off-white bullion. The insert exactly matches the strapping.

An extremely desirable SS Knot here, and one you could use on an SS Degen or the vertical hanger of an SS Dagger. There are pictures showing this knot in wear on both types of weapon.

Near Mint. $1,695.00

ACCOUT&P #40381C Shooting Association Cutlass Troddel

This troddel is a difficult accoutrement to find. It consists of green, silk-like strapping with a nice texture.

The slide and stem have the same silk-like material. The lower ball is done in a thick, yarn-like material and is a matching green. The insert is the same as the strapping.

The is no fraying on this knot, although it does look like it may have been on a cutlass at one time.

A great opportunity to complete your Shooting Association Cutlass here.

Excellent Plus, Plus. $250.00

ACCOUT&P #40233 Unissued SS Sword Portepee

This SS Sword Portepee is in beautiful, unissued mint condition.

The strapping is textured aluminum brocade with two sets of dual black lines running the length. The slide is of prefect bullion wire. The stem is rounded on both sides, with very fine black SS runes in a black circular border.

The oval ball is in choice condition, constructed of yarn-like bullion and with stuffing that matches the strapping.

The original price tag is also included with this amazing portepee. It reads "RH3", which I assume was 3 Reichsmarks. There is a number above this, "3989", which was most likely a stock number. One half of the original RZM tag and some thread remains with this knot.

If you have a beautiful SS Officer's Sword that needs an equally beautiful knot, this is your piece. This SS knot is really the top of the line; it is very rare to see this type of hot in issued condition.

Mint. $1,495.00

ACCOUT&P #40189C Original Postal Protection Portepee

This Postal Knot is as real as they come. I get many calls from collectors looking for these knots and they are nearly impossible to find.

This example is unfortunately worn and frayed in several places. It is possible, though, that if it were tied properly on a grip one could minimize the amount of fraying visible. It is certainly better than a remade Johnson knot!

The lower portion of the knot is perfect, with a good slide, stem, and lower ball. The original orange insert has a small moth hole but it is not too bad.

This knot has some condition issues but represents a very, very rare chance to complete your Postal dagger.

Fair. $350.00

ACCOUT&P #39360 SS-VT Bayonet Troddel with Tag

This SS-VT Bayonet Troddel would be very desirable for anyone looking to complete an SS Dress Bayonet or K-98.

This troddel has the usual off-white strapping with a pair of dual black trim lines running along the edges. The center of the strap is textured, with no fraying.

The slide and cap are a rich blue color, with a red stem. The lower ball is in the speckled black and white pattern unique to the SS. The insert at the lower portion of the ball matches the strapping.

The original paper tag is attached to this piece. It has the traditional SS printings in black and is rubber stamped “21”, with a run number of “216723”. The tag shows a little age and wear but is intact and legible.

ACCOUT&P #36739 Large Size Army Officer's Sword Portepee

We were lucky enough to acquire some unissued Army leather strapping pieces in full length that were leftover from the end of the war. These straps were attached to the lower ball with a stem, but sadly the ball was missing. We where able to salvage a lower bullion ball which nicely complements the leather strap.

This is a great opportunity to acquire a fine, restored period portepee, and is priced accordingly.

Excellent Plus, Plus. $95.00

ACCOUT&P #36705C Army EM Bayonet Troddel

This Army Enlisted Man's Troddel has been on a bayonet and shows some usage as well as soiling. The strapping is a gray, silk-like material, having a textured pattern in the center. Although there is no visible fraying, there are signs of wear on the edges of the straps.

The slide and cap are a matching gray color, also soiling some soiling. The stem is of a red, silk-like material, while the lower ball also appears to be gray with an insert material that exactly matches the strapping.

A good example here for a bayonet showing modest wear.

Excellent. $95.00

ACCOUT&P #36702C Police Sword/Bayonet Portepee

This portepee is the cloth style that could be worn on either a Police degen or a bayonet. The cloth fabric is in excellent condition throughout, and is set in place as though it was originally tied to a bayonet frog. This method would work the best with this portepee, but it could also work on a sword as the fabric would easily give to a different configuration.

The fabric is decorated with triple aluminum stitching which runs the length, with a red highlight stitch in the center. The slide is a woven leather example, having decorative red and bullion construction. The stem is a flat type, having a crochet-like bullion covering revealing the bullion beneath. The oval acorn ball is of all yarn-like bullion. The insert is interesting as it is of black and red bullion; this is the first time I've ever seen this style. I assume it was just a method that was accomplished by a certain manufacturer.

A very nice portepee here.

Near Mint. $150.00

ACCOUT&P #36699C Early Black SS Sword Troddel

This SS Sword Troddel is constructed of black leather strapping, having triple aluminum bullion wire stitching that runs the length. The original tie strings still on this leather. The leather, however, is still supple.

The slide is a woven leather type, with bullion highlights. The stem below is the flat style, covered in crochet-like material. The metal below shows in between the bullion material.

The oval acorn ball is constructed of yarn-like bullion, and the insert is a dark gray color type of stitching as opposed to fabric. We believe this type of knot was worn on early SS swords. It is also possible that this knot could have been worn on swords that were designated for other uses, such as Forestry/Hunting or other club organizations. Still, a very rare not.

Mint. $250.00

ACCOUT&P #36698C Army Officer's Sword Portepee

This Army Officer's Sword Portepee still has the original tie strings around the leather strapping. The strapping, however, is still supple and in excellent condition. This strapping has the usual dual aluminum wire stitching which runs the length.

The slide below is covered in crochet-like bullion, revealing the metal beneath. The trim cord above the slide is a gray color. I mention this because the lower acorn ball is also covered in a gray cord as opposed to the usual bullion. The insert is a gray textured fabric.

An interesting Army Portepee here, probably produced by a small manufacturer. This is the first time I've seen this gray lower ball used with the standard green strapping.

Mint. $175.00

ACCOUT&P #36701 Unusual Police Officer's Degen Portepee

This portepee appears to have been used on a Police edges weapon. It has black strapping, which is still in pristine condition. The strapping is decorated with three silver wire lengths, and the center is left plain with the tow outside wires having the red highlights. This is opposite from what we normally see.

The slide is of intertwined black cloth with red and silver highlights, while the stem is the flat style with a silver, crochet-like bullion covering. The metal is visible beneath. The lower acorn ball is also covered in matching silver bullion. The stuffing inside is in red and black thread.

It is possible that I am wrong in identifying this portepee as a Police item, but it sure would look great on a fine conditioned Degen.

Near Mint. $195.00
