I think the handle is a later replacement, not sure when but I am confident that the original handle on this yatagan was a silver one. Sliver handles are prone to damage are easier to fall off than...

You can consider it whatever you want, fake or reproduction, doesn’t matter. It is not antique as far my eyes can see. If you don’t like the answers you are getting then you should have not asked in...

This is so true! Sometimes I wish some of my swords didn’t have that ugly old/damaged scabbard at all. It’s like I don’t know what to do with them. I don’t want to throw them away but I don’t want to...

I agree 100%! This is Rams horn. Made In Turkey. As far as I know they fry these horns before installation to protect them from worms getting to them, that’s why the color is usually odd in these and...

Sorry, I apologize. Didn’t mean to sound rude. I said what I said lightheartedly.
