You're right, I think there's a gap in the market for yataghan catalogues of the less-than-pasha quality. In an odd way, I suppose it's exciting how speculative analysis is even on a forum like this.

Anyway, efharisto para poli yia voithia sou me to Yataghani pragmati (sorry, my Greek's appalling... )
The 1 and 4 are from the NHM in Athens (also in Elgood book foto 164), the others from auctions.

In all these blades can anyone read dates?
