I think this has come up on the CR list before - the company used both spellings, at least on the tubing decals. Now it also sounds as though they used a variety of decal styles! Anyway, they made nice enough tubing...

Perhaps one of the Italian list members knows the actual Falck/Falk story? Any information, other than something like "quasi lo stesso" would be welcome.
