Product Information

This is a pre WW1 Ottoman Empire Turkish military sword. In 1909 orders were placed with German sword makers for new a standard cavalry sabre. These were made with a steel half bowl guard with folded edges; the front guard was pierced/cut out with the five-point star and crescent symbol of the Ottoman Empire. On this example, written in Ottoman script is the weapon number then the German trademark and just below it is the date ۱ ۳۲۵ (1325 = Ottoman year 1909). In total 10,000 of these swords were delivered prior to WW1, to fully re-equip the Ottoman regular cavalry (intended for the troopers in each squadron: 88 men x 116 squadrons).
