Sold Item Notice

A nice example in that it bears the armourer Abduhu's mark to the blade (see Plate 1 of Islamic Armourers and Their Works by L. A. Mayer), this Ottoman yataghan has had some hilt repair as is quite common, and the fine wire bindings are a little astray, but this is a very old sword.

60.5 cm blade, some very slight curvature, firm in the hilt. Excellent value. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Please quote item reference number D79(761).
