Just because the blade is Damascus steel or wootz doesnít mean itís an antique piece. There are many bladesmiths in Syria and Turkey still make very good Damascus steel blades. I have to agree that this is a replica of a pala /kilic/shamshir. Definitely modern made. Have seen better ones new for sale in Turkey. If you like what you see and understand what it is yes you can still buy it but dont think itís a 200 year old sword. Other than that yes well made blade
And the gold writings are not Ottoman.
