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 (rather faint). The scabbard is iron, as is the hilt, and both have much of their original finish.

The blade is 25.5 inches (64.75 cms) and the overall length is 31 inches (78.75 cms).

testimonials

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
