This is my favorite inscription on Yataghans )

The entire enemy are scattered at this knife’s blow,
It takes revenge on the enemy like Zülfikar.

Yes, the Autumn of the Gregorian year 1745.
Engraved cartouches of this type often have an old date.
The photo shows the date 1756, the middle of the Gregorian year.
An old yataghan, it's a pity that he lost the handle.
Bolster is authentic I think.

The grip looks to have had a guard at some time.
