Hello Tatyana,

Very interesting sword (Karabella Yatagan), but for accuracy one needs to mention it is PATTERN WELDED Damascus and not true/oriental Damascus steel (aka WOOTZ).

Regards,

Marius

PS: And my guess is that it is pretty recent, more exactly XX (or late XIX) century Turkish...

Maybe you should post the thread on Ethnographic forum.
