SUPER 42cm BULLION KNOT TO SUIT GOVERNMENT DAGGER.
This was a nice find recently and in my opinion would be perfect for a Government Official or Diplomatic dagger. Whilst they specifically had a 42cm knot with a very small ball and very thin bullion cords, these are incredibly rare. I also think they were incredibly rare at the time too! Most ORIGINAL daggers I have owned over the years have had the ordinary 42cm bullion portepees tied to them. Army types. In nearly all cases, it’s obvious that these knots have also been on these daggers for ever, as they are ‘frozen’ and locked in place over the years. This particular knot has VERY thin and dainty bullion cords, attached to a much smaller bullion acorn! I have shown it compared to a standard army portepee, and it’s considerably different in size. It is in very good condition with no damage etc. It seems to have been tied to a dagger at some time, but I feel it would look marvellous on a Government hilt.
