sawzall has become a generic term for a recip saw much like skilsaw with circular saws, kleenex with facial tissues and frisbee with flying disks.

I was just about to say the same thing. I worked with a guy that called a sawzall a saw saw. Same with a kid I was in a high school carpentry class. My teacher always corrected him and we both agreed with the same thing ROFL said too, that things of a certain type often get labeled with the same brand name.
