Help with Yatagan no.1 inscriptions
Hello, Since my father died in February I try to learn more about 3 items from his Balkan collection. 2 Yatagas and 1knife. Yatagan which I post first is 65 cm long (only blade). It has lot of inscription which looks like Arabic, some signature (like owner or sword maker) also in other side of the blade. Metal looks old with rust spots but quality made, to me . Also signatures are written contra side as seen on other Yatagans. Along the cutting edge on both sides, dark line is seen.. like tempered (hardened)part- seen when turning the blade towards the sun light.
I will be happy for any information.
Thank you and best regards,
