Very few are real, but this one is in my view. only the 2nd one I have seen. Grip emblem appears factory installed. At first, I used to believe that these were converted police bayonets, where the wearer was given the piece for a retirement memento, after which having the NSKOV emblem attached. However, this does not fit the evidence - there are no other holes in the grip for earlier insignia and the NSKOV insignia would not fit in the holes that would have been present had a police emblem been mounted. So, in my view, these are factory pieces, perhaps for NSKOV flag details or honor guard at funerals or some sort of duty like this.
