I can't recall ever having seen a yataghan with a T-Rib before but maybe I haven't been paying close enough attention (they are usually so darn expensive that I only glance at them).
Hi Rob,
You have a good steel blade and Marius will tell you to polish it and he will be right!

I wil take some risks and say that your Yat is from Bulgaria or Turkey...
