Three years after filing suit, EdgeCraft Corporation has won its trademark litigation case against Smith's Consumer Products, whose Edgeware trademark was deemed as "likely to cause confusion, mistake or deception."

The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, operating under the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, ordered the cancellation of the three existing Edgeware registrations. Both the Edgeware and EdgeCraft names were registered trademarks for knife sharpeners and other kitchen projects, but EdgeCraft had held the name since 1985.
