But it is very difficult to live in Russia, be interested in cold arms and know nothing about the shashka.
This is a very interesting old shashka in the Circassian style. It was probably brought to Turkey by Muhajirs - Muslim immigrants after the Caucasian Wars (mainly from 1858-1864). The scabbard are already made in Turkey.
Unfortunately, I have nothing to say about the blade, but it definitely deserves attention.
