Hi,
This is an incomplete inscription. Either the maker's seal was struck on the inscription or the calligrapher was out of space

The inscription on this yatağan is:

Darbından bu bıçağın cümle
İntikam alır aduvvdan sanki

But the complete form of this inscription which I came across in different yatağans is:

Darbından bu bıçağın cümle düşman tar ü mar
İntikam alır aduvvdan sanki misli zülfikar

Which can be roughly translated as:

All the enemies are decimated (destroyed, scattered) from the blow of this knife
It takes revenge from enemies as if it was Ali's (RA) sword zulfikar
