The yatagan sword.. forged from pattern welded Damascus steel in a pattern known as “Turkish ribbon” which is a complex development of the pattern known as ”Twisted Star”. Works like a cleaver, power needed to cut the same object with another design is significantly more.. (Turkish janissary sword from 16th to 19th centuries)

 Morning star mace.  The one where the  ball is in the form of 4 blades joined in the centre is my favorite. Can't find picture of it.

I believe that the perfect weapon as well as my favourite is the "Fasolada" (greek bean soup).

It works miracles - cheap ammo, silent and extremely effective!

I agree with baracuda.The yataghan is easy to draw from its hilt and its possible to cut through light to medium armour.

By the way Mennipos the white beans are called Fasulye in Turkish and they are very popular; eaten warm,cold or in a soup like that.(Some people think its our "national food" but thats unlikely as beans originally come from the new world.)I reccomend you eat it with Pilaf rice and Turkish cabbage pickles.*insert drool*

But you know, sometimes, fasulye is considered as a potential chemical gas bomb, so you should be careful...

doesn't the style of drwaing it,and the way it is placed specialises the yatagan?

No, what makes it so special is that its bent in the opposite direction of all swords.. the inner side of the bend is the composite cutting edge.. so it works a lot like a cleaver.. (kasap satiri gibi anliyacagin) .. its a lot easier to chop something in two with a yatagan than say a katana.. simply because you need less power to do so..

I was wrong then,Ok then until i post the picture,will you tell me what mine is?

It looks like this:

It is only sharp in one side,you  hang it on your belly parallel to ypur shoulders unlike other swords,It's short and it's handle is made out of wood

(also very rusty and bloody,though i tried to clean it)
