Working backwards, the silver bullion knot is a Polizei officer grade bayonet or sword knot, which after the assimilation of the Feuerwehr into the Greater police force, could have been used on a Feuerwehr short model faschinenmesser. The green/silver knot I believe to be a Heer NCO knot. The red/grey knot looks like a Heer knot although I don't know which company it's for. The first knot is a mystery to me.

Billy is quite right in his knot identification. The enlisted knot in red and grey is an enlisted wartime Heer Troddel while the first knot is a fantasy reproduction. These oddly shaped knots have been made for some time and one sees them selling on ebay.
