    Comparing with some other examples I think its a WW2 German sword knot.

    Its a Heer Sword portepee, IIRC.

    this is only a Portepee , not only to wear with the Säbel

    official Form of the Heer (Army).


    Portepee-Unteroffiziere (senior NCO) and Offiziere (officers) wear this Portepee to the Seitengewehr (bayonet) and the Säbel (saber).

    Thanks for the responses. The crucial thing I needed to know is if this is for a sword or for a bayonet, Sleepwalker is saying its for both. So it is fine to display this with a parade bayonet?

    a dress or a service bayonet

    both is ok.

    Hello,

    I believe with the leather strap it is for the sword and not the bayonet.

    the official model always has a leather strap... for bayonet and saber

    it is not a matter of belving... facts exist... if possible read in the H.D.v. 123 A

    the material of the strap is equal.

    For the saber they use often the privat marketed big model with 3 lines of silver stitching.

    This model is not a WH or a WWII Portepee... this model was used since 1924.

    Hello,

    After a bit more research on my part I totally concur with sleepwalker!! I believe the confusion was in the name of the item on my part!
