Default Is this a Persian Kard?

Local store has this and I'm interested. Best photos I could get with a cell phone. The blade is either actual wootz or a very high quality pattern weld.

Thanks. Can you refine it any? I'm guessing prior to 1900.

Yes, a classical Ottoman Kard and 19th Century. The handle is likely jade and the blade is wootz. The silver scabbard also has all elements of classical Ottoman design, the repose style, 'rings' near the opening and the dragon/fish finial. A nice Kard.

As it was said before, in my oppinion too, it is 19th century Ottoman, most likely Turkish Kard.

Better photos should help to identify if it is wootz.

Vendor is getting a professional appraisal. If it's outside my price range, I've told them I'll let people know, so you can descend upon them.
