Sword Knots

The sword knot, decorative as it can often be, is actually an essential accessory to the fighting weapon. The 'knot' is in fact a loop of leather or other material secured to the sword hilt. Before an engagement the swordsman wraps the loop around his wrist to prevent loss of the sword should he need to relax his grip (to control his horse for example) or if the weapon is struck from his grasp.

Sword knots are of two main types. For active service wear, the knot is a plain or plaited buff leather strap. Full dress versions are much more elaborate creations of gold or silver cord and tassels in patterns unique to each regiment or unit.
