    Hi John, they certainly exist, however, I would not say all were original.

    The vast majority of 6 strand bordered titles were the products of the faker Ken Lane back in the 1960's. They were made in Vienna.

    It is possible to find some good original 6 strand bordered titles, but these are rare. I think Bob H has a couple. One variant which is totally original are those which have an alternating pattern going from 5 to 6 strand.

    Personally, I would play it safe and buy a conventional "text book" 7 strand.

    Cheers, Ade.

    That is my stance on the subject, go for 7 strand and there is less controversy.

    Ulric's books on cuff titles clearly state, and show 6 strand cuffs with evidence. I Know that the DF and D titles were "supposedly" made in the 6 stand variant. I just thought it would be a good one to discuss.............
