That looks like it is a maker's mark (albeit a simple, modern-looking one) stamped into the metal of the blade. If you just bought it over the counter and are unhappy with it, I would just take it back and get my money back rather than try to fix it yourself. Otherwise, there is no quick and easy fix.

Is the sword Roman by any chance? I ask because the mark SPQR was typically found on Imperial Roman items and basically meant it was the property of the senate and the people of Rome.

"Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword." - The Lord Jesus Christ, from The Gospel According to Saint Matthew, chapter x, verse 34, Authorized Version of 1611

S.P.Q.R stands for Senatus Populusque Romanus "The Senate and the People of Rome". I hope it's a roman sword!
