An Ottoman Yataghan dated to 1767 AD with a finely watered steel curved blade with a flat back edge and inscriptions and star motifs along both sides of the blade.

Ottoman kilij (saber), 19th century. The blade is signed by its maker, Acem Oglu. The Arabic inscriptions decorating it include: "Oh from the gentle God whose gentleness is without end, You are the Powerful, we will love You in Your palace on the day of judgement." The foliate ornament on the guard and scabbard mounts shows the strong influence of European design in Turkish art of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Bequest of George C. Stone, 1935, Metropolitan Museum of Art.
