    Question about the knot to the saber.

    Hello.
    I got this dress knot for the American saber arr. 1902. At least to the catalog for the sale of army equipment, it is called that way.

    Now my question is addressed to connoisseurs of American saber knots and their use.
    Will such a knot be appropriate with an army officer's sword mod. 1860, which were worn at the beginning of the 20th century?
    The 1902 saber I have has a leather knot that has been tied to it for a long time.

    Vladimir,

    The bullion knot with blue highlights that you show is the dress knot that was worn with the M1902 Army Officer Saber. It is correct for that saber but not for the earlier sword. The earlier sword took a different gold bullion knot and not this one. The leather knot is the service knot that was also worn with the M1902 Army Officer Saber. The leather knot was basically worn with the khaki or tan & pinks uniform while the bullion knot was worn with the blue dress uniform.

    I hope this helps.

    George, thanks for the answer.
    I thought so, but I suggested that perhaps such a knot could be tied on a sword from 1860.
    I have a variation of the 1860 sword made by the Horsman company in the 1920s, but it turns out that the 1902 saber knot cannot be carried with it.

    The correct officer's knot for your M1860, through 1902, except with two sliding loops instead of one per the 1874 Ordnance Memo:
