I was hoping you'd chime in on this, Sancar. I was looking through your thread on contemporary Turkish bladesmiths to see if something similar came up.

Nice khanda, nifty back edge at the tip. I would have bid on it if not for the high shipping costs.

Pattern welded blade. An etch should bring it out nicely.

Hi Richard,

This question came up a few years ago (http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showthread.php?t=560)

No conclusive proof of hoof being used, IIRC.

Hello,

This a Genovese knife "con passacorda", referring to the thin blade tip. It was supposedly indeed used for rigging and knots.

The slit in the blade, or sometimes in the tang when the handle...

Hello,

Nice pedang. Interesting that the scabbard chape has a drag in the style of long European sabres. Not necessary on a short sabre like this but maybe a feature borrowed from Dutch...

Ooh, very interesting piece, the blade has very graceful lines!

The mother-of-pearl looks like a modern addition to the large brass rivets. The style recalls North/Eastern Anatolian and Central...

Hello,

It looks like a very nice Ottoman khanjar with Albanian-style handle and a very nice Ottoman court dagger.

Lovely!

Made for use during the durbar, so intended for ceremony/parade/dress purposes, not necessarily for fighting.

Nice tulwar, much nicer quality chiseling than often seen.

Great, thanks Zifir!
That matches the 1913 on the scabbard then. So this makes the large yataghan the latest I have seen, and an example of 20th century production :)

This also matches what Sancar...

3 large yataghan (T-spine, T-pommel, Turkish Ribbon)

Hi everyone,
