Default Kindjal to share, help please, markings, age, location, thanks

Recently Arrived this Morning, I got it from eBay, I think I got real lucky on this one. The seller recently sold a a couple sabers before this ,they were amazing, and I was hoping they would show up on the forum. If its alright I would share a couple photos of the swords. There was also post cards and photos sold, I would share a few that were cool. if that's allowed

I Have only done a little research into Kindjals, if people could help me find out the origin, and age,
The blade marking???

I don't think this was a military issue?, I almost see what could be a marking of a signature, the blade is 2 inches wide, and 15 inches long, 21 inches total with handle. Its very sharp.
Is this technically a short sword?

Hello,
welcome to the kindjal club !

I think it's a caucase/ Russian cossack kindjal with silver tip and parts,
hilt seems made of horn,

end of 19th century ?

I've seen these marks on blades but don't remember were they come from,
sure specialists will help you !

Georgian would be my guess, but rather low grade.

Good evening,

This is for sure a nice Kindjal but there are some points that disturb me :

-The leather of the scabbard looks to be really recent, and artificialy aged, hard to be sure only based on photo but is this genuine leather ?

-The blade looks to had been hardly cleaned with some electric tool, maybe a circular sander, looks to be confirm by the "1/4 circles " scars of the blade.

Best regards
