I belive this might be a contemporary bıçak/bichaq/bichak made in Uzbekistan or Eastern Turkistan. But is is still a very well-crafted beautiful knife regardless of its age. :)

estrch, there are many mixtures of truth and misinformation, and tons of orientalist bias in those quotes you post (even that "Zeibek, the name of a Turkish tribe in the region of Smyrna" quote make...

Well, I can refer to several books that I read about history of photography in the Ottoman Empire, but all are in Turkish I'm afraid. Even if they were in English, I doubt you would be satisfied...

Ariel, it is not a strict uniform, just the local costume. ;) And not specific to zeybeks either. This is mostly similar to most town folk wore in Ottoman Anatolia and Balkans in 19th century....

Looks like a copy of a WWI "Enveriye" dagger. I don't think it is Turkish made. Local wallhanger daggers for tourist market are far worse than this. Possibly from Syria or other Arabic countries....

This painting has nothing to do with Umayyad general Tarık Bin Ziyad or his invasion of Andulusian Spain. This is a scene from Shahnama, named "Charge of the Cavaliers of Faramouz". I can't say...

Kubur, if you can find, you might want to use black coloured epoxy to fill those cracks and fix the blade to the hilt. That way, it will be much easier to hide the restorations. ;)
