Default help for a translation

These are the writings on my yataghan ( 1850 ???). I don't know if the pics, taken starting from the blade, are over - under. Please, help me with the translation.
Thank You Paolo

Hi Paolo
I dunno where you found the date 1850 ???
there is a date, yes, but this one
you will get it, as said "Battara", when you gonna show your whole yatagan
as it's a part of our rules (if I might said) here

all the best

Hello Paolo
unfortunately my feeling was right ...
you will need a linguistic in Turkish, it's not Arabic language
when I saw the "tughra" I was pretty sure

only thing we have been able to translate,
excepted one (1) word, it's only in phonetic, hasn't a sense in Arabic "outna" (?)

1217 AMAL OUTNA SALEH either 1802 MADE BY OUNA(?) SALEH

all the best
