These bayonet/side arm knots (troddeln) were introduced into the Prussian Army in 1808. The variant colours indicate the particular battalion and company to which the wearer belonged. They continued to be worn (normally wrapped round the frog) in the Weimar era and then in the Third Reich when the loose knot assumed a closed, barrel shaped form.

This example is in pristine condition, hence the price. The survival rate of these Imperial souvenirs was low, as against the Third Reich types which are found with much greater frequency.

testimonials

Just a brief note to confirm that the sabre has been delivered today. All is as it should be. I have to say I’m impressed with the ‘custom’ packaging, obviously essential in your line of business. I have made a very quick inspection of the sword & it fully lives up to your accurate description, very pleased with the purchase.

The pommel arrived safely today... It's a nice little object and really quite tactile... As usual, it was a pleasure to do business with you and I look forward to finding something else in your stock to tempt me.
