Sword Knots

Sword Knots

Sword Knot is a ribbon or a tassel that is attached to the sword hilt. It is used to secure it to the wrist. Before getting engaged, the shooter wraps a rope around his wrist to prevent the loss of the sword if he has to release his grip (for example, to control his horse) or if a weapon is struck in his hand. From this source of aid, the sword knot has gradually evolved into its own decorative and distinct modern style. Sword knots are of two main types. For functional service wear, the knot is a blank or woven buff leather belt. Fully embroidered garments are the most sophisticated creation of gold or silver yarn and ribbons with different patterns in each regiment or unit.
