Finally we can offer a completely functional black leather sword knot. It is appropriate for use by Officers and Non-Commissioned Officers, as per the 1861 General Army Regulations:
1539 "For all other Officers (not General Officers)-black leather, plain"
1540 "For all Non-Commissioned Officers-black leather, plain"
During the Civil War most Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers and even Enlisted members privately purchased sword knots resulting in a myriad of styles sold by sutlers. Our reproduction sword knot is approximately 20-3/4" overall in length and 7/8" wide.
