ACCOUT&P #43176C SS Sword Portepee

This SS Sword Portepee shows age, wear, and usage but remains basically sound.

The aluminum bullion strapping has a little fraying on the edges, but it is okay. The textured bullion is decorated with a pair of black lines that run the length of the edges, and the woven slide is in place. The stem is the curved type, marked with a set of SS runes in a circle on both sides. Unfortunately these runes are worn and are slightly faded from age. The lower ball is in good condition, with a stuffing that matches the straps.

A good, original SS Sword portepee here, with honest period wear.

Excellent. $595.00

The slide is woven bullion and black and the stem is the "crochet" type that shows the metal beneath. The oval ball has a bullion top and the ball itself is bullion and black thread, with a felt insert.

These knots go well with a bayonet designated for the SS, and I have seen them many times on a SS NCO's degen.

Mint. $195.00

This SS-VT Bayonet Troddel is equipped with off-white textured cotton strapping, with two sets of dual black lines that run the length.

ACCOUT&P #42863C 23cm Luftwaffe Portepee

This 23 cm Luftwaffe Portepee remains in top condition.

It has been on a dagger but this has done nothing to effect the knot in a negative way.

Near Mint. $150.00

If this knot were to be used on a mint sword I am confident the leather would not split or break.

A nice example here.
