Collect IJN/SNLF swords, dirks, headgear and Nihon-to.

Raising the sword point up can allow the tassel to slide down over the end of the tsuka...there is then a "ready made knot" waiting to be pulled tight.
I guarantee, that this is what has happened numerous times and all in the time the swords were played with by the veteran and his kids.
The correct thing to do is to unravel the knots and lay flat with a book or weight on it for a time until the "kinks" are flattened out, then re-attach...or do what I do, keep the tassel separate unless it is on display...darn pesky things tassels :D
