    Ok its as straight forward as that.

    I dont know why I thought the 1st pattern had the longer knots and the second pattern the shorter.

    thankyou for clearing that up

    The 43cm Portepee was worn on the 1st model Luftwaffe dagger, but after october 37 the shorter 23cm was worn, those who received there 1st model as an award or presentation were allowed to still use it instead of the 2nd model, and they sometimes kept the longer portepee on it instead of the shorter kind which is common for the 2nd model. so technically both sizes are correct for a 1st model.
