Default Large dagger with Armenian (?) inscription

Large Ottoman yataghan type of dagger. One side of teh blade is etched with designs, the other has an inscription. I am not sure about what is the language of teh inscription.

That's pure Arabic my friend.
The scabbard is beautiful. At a first look i was thinking Indian, but when I looked closer it's all Ottoman Turkish... "our taste".
