    Don't know much about Fällkniven specifically but it wouldn't surprise me since a lot of Mora knives have been laminated steel since I don't know when but I think that its use in Swedish knives started without influence from Japan in which case it wouldn't make sense to use the Japanese term for it.

    This topic has generated a fair bit of anger and a lot of laughs over on the big knife forum. Apparently, this was not a big problem until the term san-mat was used on that slightly silly "Forged In Fire" TV show. Some of the first guys to get these "demand letters" were some of the smiths who participated in that show. There was not a whole lot of love lost for Mr. T even before this popped up, so people are having even more fun busing his chops now.

    I will most likely always think and sometimes speak of san mai as a form of construction, otherwise known as a laminated blade. SOmeone better inform the Japanese makers!

    I'm surprised someone hasn't patented the name Hunting Knife, Straight Razor, or Kitchen Knife. Bully tactics for sure.

    I know Cold Steel has Kukri and Tanto knife models. Are those names copyrighted, too?
