Word of the Day #1: Yataghan

yataghan (yāt'ə-gān', -gən)

n. A Turkish sword or scimitar having a double-curved blade and an eared pommel, but lacking a handle guard.


“Aw, man! I can’t believe I got a D in English. This sucks!”

“You know what else would suck? Getting your fingers chopped off by a yataghan, a double-curved, medieval, Turkish blade.”

“Oh, snap.”
