Title Turkish infantry NCO's side arm
Nationality Turkish
Period c 1900
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Made by Horster of Solingen, this is a classic export number of the period. Interestingly, the maker's details appear both in German and Arabic script at the forte of the blade, along with a religious exhortation in a small panel in the middle of the blade. The scabbard is iron, as is the hilt, and both have much of their original finish.

testimonials

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
