Ottoman Yatagan Islamic Turkish 19th Century sword
I was given this sword by a pastor in Burgas, Bulgaria in thanks for leading a humanitarian aid convoy after the fall of the Iron Curtain. Around 1990. Burgas is only about 200 miles from Istanbul, Turkey.There is a small sliver on one side of the handle missing and shown in the photo but the handle and the rest of the sword are sound and tight. Some of the gold inlay remains in the etchings. Never cleaned. Actually, still quite sharp. No scabbard.
Overall 28 inches. Blade 22.25 inches.
