|Marc Pain's Leather sheaths
Marc's work on leather is a real pleasure to watch,
he knows how to listen the complex needs of knife-owners
for their belt sheaths. Near Toulouse (South West
of France)... Tel. +33 561 140 026 (evening).
The Bal'X is a new prototype of the Bal'XYZ, inspired
from both the XYZ concept and the balisong concept.
Two balisong specialists, Fred Perrin (experts
in self-defense weapons & balisong) and Guillaume
Morel (author of the book Balisong,
le couteau papillon) tested the knife... and
appreciated a lot how it can be handled, played
5 knives by M. Blum!
|Tube cigare & Yawara
The Tube Cigare made by Robert Losson is both
light and strong (made of Carbon). Gérard
Lecoeur, specialist of throwing knives in France,
found a second interest in this object: Yawara,
self-defense weapon coming from Japanese arts,
allowing strikes & locks.
