The sole is flat and everything works well, i.e, the lateral adjuster seems fine, the depth adjustment seems fine, and so forth. All in all it feels about the same as several other planes I own. I am going to check how sharp the iron really is. I sharpened several of them a few months ago and I wonder if it’s not as sharp as I want to believe.

It could well be a Defiance. Whoever made it wasn’t proud enough of their product to put their name on it :-)
