After looking closer to the photos, I have reasons to believe that the tip of the blade had originally an yelman and the blade was later reshaped to a simple tipped point.

Wrong tip, wrong shape, wrong tang, wrong writtings but this sword is a good catch... mmmm I have a different opinion and I guess that this forum is open to different opinions... But I have to confess: good wootz, so it's a nice piece of wootz and it's not too bad...
