    How do you pronounce Sako?


    (Something else?)

    everyone I have heard says say - co

    A Finn would probably sound like Sakk'oh, Sayco is the norm in Anglo.

    Sah-co seems to get common as you go North (long 'a' sound, like a posh person saying bath).

    I have come across people who put the stress on the second syllable - so it sounds like ser-CO.

    Personally, it should really be pronounced 'berretta'...

    It's what you say after it that counts I pronounce it - say-co L61R

    The correct pronunciation is SACKO. I got that directly from a Finn, and he said SOCKO. I believe it's taken from the full address of the company and that sako is the Finnish for FINE. I always say sacko and get corrected all the time, but I'm sticking to it.

    Bit like Ticker and Teeka.

    The variations on Swarovski make me laugh sometimes. I've always though it reads just as it sounds! .... sounds just as it reads!?

    Indeed. Although one of the best ones I have heard was a couple of black country lads discussing the Webley Paradigm a couple of years ago. Or as they called it the 'para dig um'.
