Default Spanish(?) Machete Sword with horn grips

Good afternoon everyone,

For my first post here I'd like to offer up this interesting 19" (overall) machete type knife with horn grips and a fullered blade which becomes double edged. It's a quality piece with good steel and craftsmanship although its stitched leather sheath is not so reflective of that anymore!

Perhaps the most interesting quality is the stamped "K&F" trademark which is yet to be identified despite my efforts. Possibly a German blade on a Spanish Colonial Machete?

I have found similar examples here
and here:

Any thoughts and opinions welcomed, and thank you!
