Ahh... something up my alley. First things first: how confident are you that those knives are fake? The pawn shop people might be ignorant about the value. If you got a good look and you are sure they are selling fakes, then you have three possibilities.
1. Tell the manager that you doubt the authenticity of those knives and you believe they may be counterfeit.
2. Tell the real knife maker about it.
3. Contact the national IPR (Intellectual Property Rights) Center: http://www.iprcenter.gov/referral/.
You could do any of those, none of them, or all three of them, frankly. It sounds like this is something you care about, so maybe you feel it's justified to contact the knife maker and the feds. (you can make reports to the national IPR Center anonymously, just FYI) As far as confronting the manager, well... that's up to you how you do that. Sometimes the "soft sell" works, sometimes the hard sell works.
