This topic is very interesting!

Don't we have any Turkish forum members with access to Turkish bibliography? :shrug:

In my novice opinion this is neither Greek, nor Turkish but most likely Balkan yatghan.
The blade might be Turkish but then re-hilted in the Balkans.

For 40 bucks I'd say it is a great deal. Would have bought it myself for this little!
In conclusion: great buy!

Unfortunately, like you can learn from the previous comments, this is not a wootz blade, but a pattern welded one.

And it is a very poor quality one. This type of blades are in most cases so soft...

I cannot say much about the sword in the original posting, but the one in your posting is a typical matador sword.

After looking closer to the photos, I have reasons to believe that the tip of the blade had originally an yelman and the blade was later reshaped to a simple tipped point.

This is another one of lesser quality.
The Qama bears the name of the owner: Aksnti Peradze (I suspect the first name is misspelled as it should have been Aksenti or Aksinti).

This looks like a current production Omani khanjar to me. I have seen many like yours in the souks of Muscat and Nizwa. The hilt is almost certainly horn.
My two cents...
