Yataghan Swords

These single-edged short swords were used by the Ottoman Empire from the 16th to 19th centuries. The Yataghan’s shorter length and unique recurve blade allowed for a swifter and more powerful chopping strike. They were carried by Ottoman infantry and janissaries, the Empire’s elite corps of soldier bodyguards. These ceremonial swords boast an intricately designed silver mounting with coral accents, more likely used to show the status of a wealthy citizen or military officer than to use in battle.
