The following maker's mark is found with two different spellings. Soerensen verses Sorensen. I have heard this described as a typo, two different makers, counterfeit, etc. Most recently, I was told that it is a language - phonetics thing. Depending on the country the item was to be sold in, it was stamped so that the reading would produce a correct pronunciation of the company name. What do you think?

Both marks are correct. Your assumption as to whether one is export and the other not is most likely the reason. In the danish language there is a letter representing an "oe" sound that is written like an "o" with a strike through it, top right to bottom left. Kind of like a "do not" symbol that we often use. Typically when a word is written in all-caps, characters that represent the pronunciation of more than one letter are not used and the letters are written out as they sound.
