I can't figure out what is written on this blade

    I am new here; so sorry if this is posted in the wrong place. I recently found this dagger [​IMG] at an estate sale and I enjoyed the shape, brass/copper fittings, and that it seems to have a bone handle, 13" overall. So for $10 I'm happy with the purchase. I don't care about value or anything like that, but I am frustrated to no end that I can't figure out what is written on the blade. [​IMG] When I first picked it up it was super rusty so I couldn't read anything on it, I polished it up and was careful around the words. They still seem really faded/missing. I am hoping that the words are the manufacture of the blade, but it could be a novelty etching.

    It seems like I could take it apart further by taking the hex nut off the back. My plan is to refinish the blade (leaving the words), polish the fittings, and make a wooden sheath.

    Any help on identification of where this was made would be awesome.

    If you want any more pictures please let me know

    Thanks,
    Sean

    Hmm. Google translate sorta of works for that. Illizo wall... Thanks for the input! I didn't think to try other languages. I am hoping someone recognizes the name. I'll keep digging.

    Some. And that is not Italian.

    It looks like a handwriting...."....ictory Panette"?

    Victory Panette, maybe? Was there a maker or manufacturer named Panette or Parette?

    Don't clean and polish more than you have until you find out what it is.
    You'll probably destroy any collector value if you do.
