Is there a special name for the Knight in this game? It is not in any of the other historic Shogi variants, but is in several of my own and I'd like to mention the Japanese name (both phonetic and translated) in brackets as I do with the King, Rook, Bishop, et cetera. In return I have some guidance on the English name - the misspelling 'Kinght' is very distracting because it begins with the name of a very different piece!
