Hi Jose,

I did put a picture of the full sword but it appears my photo resizer cut off half the handle. As you know I am in your neck of the woods this week so unable to correct until next week. If we need to wait for translation until next week I understand.

These are Turkish verses of the type typically found on yataghans. It is just that they are so crudely inscribed it is hard to read/identify them. It is fairly clear what one of them is, but the others will take me some time to work out, so bear with me a while

Thank you Kwiatek for taking a look at the inscriptions and the additional time to decipher. It is very much appreciated.

As promised, a better overall picture of the entire piece along with a few pictures of the handle. Thanks again Kwiatek for taking a look.
