Ariel, thanks for adding a copy of your finely researched article to the archives of the Forum. Nice work in developing an hypothesis for others to test, and the evidence you cite seems strongly suggestive of a Crimean origin for the yataghan and the geopolitical forces promoting its diffusion into the Ottoman Empire.
