Default kindjal with hardstone hilt

Hello dear members,

I received this silver mounted kindjal,
for share and comment please !
For me a nice piece !

I first thought the hilt was made of horn ( the pictures of the seller )
but I was surprised to see it has been made of stone,
a dark green stone ( without daylight , seems almost black...)

A caucasian or russian model ?
there is a signature I guess ( arabic script ) that make me think it's caucasian...
an old engraving on the blade, maybe an imperial eagle in a circle ?

The blade seems pretty old but maybe was not well preserved...

Interesting stamps on the scabbard, i'll post some pictures

What do you think?
