Up for sale is a very unusual Yataghan. The blade is forged from fine steel engraved with maker signature. Very unusual handle, with lobed pommel known as North African style and recesses for the fingers. Also the ivory grips with the thin black horn spacers below the grips are typical to earlier examples. Altogether a very old Yataghan of rare design.
