Default Yataghan inscription, one more!

It seems that with Zifir, the forum has taken another dimention! I am taking the opportunity since we have the lack to have him here to present another inscription.
Best Regards!

gia sou efhitis,

The inscription in the first picture has the same formula (prayer) as one of the other yatagan inscriptions I translated. It is:

Ya Muhammed, Kıl şefa'at
▄mmetindir Osman

O Muhammed! Intercede on the day of Judgement on the behalf of Osman, who is one of your Ummah (community of believers).

The second inscription is:

Sene 1214 Amel el-hacc Mehmed Ímer, Sahib Osman Ağa

Year 1799-1800 Swordmaker Hacı Mehmed Ímer, Owner Osman Agha

Around the name of Osman Agha, there are two arrow like signs. I don't know if they mean anything other than having ornamental function.
