Default Small Ottoman (?) knife for ID, Bulgarian shepherd's knife?

Hello members,

I came across this small well worked knife, handle from some sort of horn interlard with iron nails for better grip, bolster and end cap casted brass, blade is worked with care. It's very small with 18,5 cm overall, 9,5 cm visible blade length, peened blind tang. 3,6 mm thick near the handle. Weight is 44 gram.
I am not firm with Ottoman knives and daggers but think that it is very Ottoman influenced!?
I have seen similar knives described as Bulgarian shepherd's knives, is it such an item? See for example here:
It look very old to my eyes.
Who can help with the exact id and/or is able to tell me a little bit more about this small fellow?
