    Not Middle Eastern, but Mexican.

    Vilches = manufacturer, who is still operating: http://www.cuchilleriavilches.com.mx/english/home.html
    León = city they are based in: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le%C3%B3n,_Guanajuato
    GTO = Guanajuato, the state

    If you search Google or Google Images for "vilches leon gto sword". you'll find some similar examples.
