    Default Etchings on Kindjal ?

    Got this one today. Not a fancy one, but a good honest one
    It has got the remains of some etching on both sides and a couple of (proof) stamps on one side.
    Can anyone help me identify these etchings/stamps ?
    Thanks

    This is a late XIX c. cossack kindjal made at ZLATOUST arms factory (Russian Empire).
    The etchings mean: side 1 - # K V in cyrillic # K B = cossack troop (Kuban or terek), side 2 - Z O F = Zlatoust Arms Factory + a zlatoust proof markings (russian letters P and S in circles)
