Nifty Dembel Discovery

My latest dembel arrived today from St. Petersburg. It had a lot of residue from smoking or oil on the plastic, but after mild cleaning it has a nice patina. This is the first dembel in the collection with writing on the back. Anyone have any idea what it says?

Re: Nifty Dembel Discovery

I was informed by a friend that the expression on the back of this dembel is less than polite to say the least. Any idea why someone would write this over and over on a patch?

Re: Nifty Dembel Discovery

Left side reads "Volkhov" right side "Farab".

As to why some people do some things - your guess is as good as mine. Just sit in a shopping mall for 10 minutes and watch people pass - you'll leave scratching your head.

Re: Nifty Dembel Discovery
