    Hey guys the portepee came in! JR also sent me a dagger tool which is awesome! I tied on the portepee and it looks great! Next additions are going to be a belt loop and a chain repair from whittman.

    The portepee is not wrapped and tied correctly. Many persons have their idea about how to wrap,
    but frankly said have no idea what the official regulation tells (and who was allowed to wear the SS 1936-dagger
    with portepee). Some "experts" have been shown up for what one is! The shown portepee with earlier shown
    daggers (post 1 and post 6) do not have the proper length, as the cords officially do extend at least 10.0 cm or
    about from the crossguard.

    Have a look at the other thread where images can be found from the Verordnungsblatt der Waffen-SS and
    Deutsche Uniformen-Zeitschrift. The thread: Original photos of the chained SS dagger in wear, see especially
    post 16 where the cords with knot are hanging far from the dagger with the Waffen-SS photograph.

    Anyway: on the right side the cord should run over the crossguard and touch the upper part of the scabbard!

    Proof from the source, a heartfelt "dank u wel" is in order for Mr. Saris!!!
    However, the young man's inspiration for this thread cannot be understated.
