    Now I'm thinking and I'm not really sure if hardened steel could be easily cold stamped after treatment. I'm thinking mostly of tool wear but the steel could be also too brittle so maybe the marks on the tang where stamped when the metal was hot and soft in the factory. Anybody with more knowledge on razor manufactuing or metalurgy surely could clarify this.

    If that's the case and we consider what torero80 (#70) wrote, the markings could be from the factory for that specific seller:

    It may have been sold in Spain, and maybe even made by filarmonica. They made blades for many (really many) cuttlery stores with their own branding.

    This Marti Brothers logo could be an “honor stamp” JMP bestowed on this particular retailer/grinder. That was the gist of a B&B comment today.

    History of Filarmonice seems to be shrouded in mystery.

    Here's some more:

    This book, in what looks to me like Catalan, will be out in a month's time. It will have something on the production of Filarmonica as well according to the description:
