WW1 PERIOD TURKISH/ARABIC FIGHTING KNIFE.
This fighting knife is more than likely a veterans bring back from WW1 as it was purchased at a local Legacy auction. Steel scabbard with leather frog. Brass fitting with wood handle, the cross guard is loose as the leather buffer pad is missing. The blade has the Arabic inscription on both siades which is commonly seen on the Turkish short swords.
Interesting fighting knife.
