Jacques Monerie is a very charming person, with a lot of interesting ideas regarding locking knife systems.
We could meet him some years ago around knifes show with a suitcase full of cleaver handmade prototype with unique material, and constructed with exceptional intelligence and an original creativity.
A beautiful example of genius and passion!

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 with.

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.
