1827 is a very interesting date for the Yatagan.
Only one year has passed since the liquidation of the Janissary Ojak.
At this time, the population actively destroyed any janissary attributes, including the tombstones of the janissaries.
For the former Janissaries and the Bektashi Order (99 Orta as part of the Janissary Ojak), Albania became a refuge at that time.
I think it is allows very carefully to assume that Albania is the site of the appearance of the Yatagan with this date.
