Our Favorite Movie
Was released on DVD March 17th 2009
and finally a good review, and winner of
Classic Movie of the Month: Punisher: War Zone (2008): The flick isn't quite a year old yet, and it didn't make much money when it was released in theatres, and as a result has a bad reputation, one that isn't deserved in my opinion. It's got everyone. A great Punisher in Ray Stevenson, a great villain in Jigsaw (Dominic West), and some great, gory action sequences. The Punisher doesn't mess around. Easily one of the greatest B-movies of all time.
Also we think Lexi Alexander is 10X and the best director worldwide.
She owns a Relentless Knife.....!
Look for her next movie "LIFTED" coming soon,

as seen below .
This knife is Zone tempered, with a lifetime replacement warranty against breakage, and Super strong.
Punisher M4X knives are owned byLexi Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Jon Barton, and Pat Johnson
Here is what they had to say about the knives.
Lexi: Wow! I don't know what to say. This knife is awesome. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Words are not enough.
Jon: The knives you sent are amazing!! Truly above and beyond and mine is going in a place of honor next to my Marine Corps medals and citations in my office for all to see!
Pat: I've been collecting knives for more than 30 years and have the work of some of the worlds great knife makers in my collection. I know proudly display the work of art done by your hand along with Cooper, Sampson, Loveless, Ruana, Frank, and others. Let me thank you very sincerely and express my admiration for your artistry and workmanship. Because I feel such a personal attachment as stunt coordinator of the "Punisher" movie, your knife will always hold a place of honor not only in my collection but in my heart as well. With my sincerest thanks and appreciation, Pat Johnson
Interview with Jeff Knox, Owner of Prototype #1 of the M4X Punisher KnifeThis is a first of a series of interviews Dan asked me to conduct of interesting people who either own Relentless Knives or were directly involved with the Punisher War Zone movie. The first interview was with Jeff Knox from St. Louis, Missouri who has the honor of owning the first prototype M4X Punisher knife.
By: Major Ian Humphrey
Jeff Knox is not only a collector, he is also a budding knife maker who has trained under the famous Gil Hibben of Hibben Knives. Jeff’s Dad is Tom Knox who is president of the National Automatic Pistol Collectors Association (NAPCA) and is the editor of Automag. He also runs the Alamo Military Collectibles website (http://alamomilitary.com). So as you can imagine, Jeff spent a lot of time at gun shows and similar events. And like his father, Jeff was always fascinated by gadgets and things that “look different.” His knife collecting started with sword canes and miscellaneous “different looking” knives and when he was 16 he was introduced to a retired CIA operative who got him interested in special operations weapons, smatchets, Fairbairn daggers and pen guns. In 1998 he discovered EBay and found an early Gil Hibben double shadow knife. At the time he had no idea the difference between one knife maker vs. another nor just how much effort goes into custom knives. To his shock and amazement he did a search for Hibben knives and discovered countless unique models. This started his work in collecting custom and production versions of Gil’s knives. After a few meetings with Gil Hibben at his shop and various gun and knife shows, Jeff signed up for a knife making class with Gil. Jeff considers this a defining moment in his life because he finally got to appreciate the work and dedication that goes into designing and crafting a knife from a paper drawing to sharpened steel. Jeff is now making his own knives and can be viewed on his website that also features pictures of his amazing collection (http://fightingknives.info). Jeff still prefers “different looking” knives and you will see some examples that he is currently working on. These knives are actually made from prosthetic hip and shoulder joints which create a truly unique knife!
My travels recently took me to St. Louis, MO and I was able to meet with Jeff in person and see his amazing collection first hand. He first showed me his shop and the current batch of knives he is working on. While they are unique, they are very well designed and comfortable to hold. And I can honestly say I have never seen a knife made from a replacement hip before! Then Jeff brought me to his collection and I was practically blown off my feet. To say Jeff has an extensive collection is an understatement. He has one of the largest collections of knives (especially military) that I have ever seen. The highlight of his collection, in my opinion, is his incredible collection of CIA/OSS/SOE Spec Ops equipment. Everything from coins with tiny knife blades attached, to a knife blade designed into the sole of a shoe are all proudly displayed in Jeff’s collection. He also has a huge assortment of smatchets and Fairbairn daggers that show the history of these designs.
For Dan’s interview, we came up with eight questions that concentrate on knife collecting and what makes an “ideal military knife.” Jeff’s background can certainly lend credit to what he has to say:
What is your favorite military knife?
“That’s a tough question, I don’t think I can narrow it down to just 1, I would have to give a top 5 in no particular order: Cruver machete, WWII Robbins Dudley punch knife, WWII Stone knife, Fairsword & V-42.”
Tell us more about your father’s military collectables business
“My father opened Alamo Military Collectibles (716 Lemay Ferry, St Louis, MO 63125 – 314-638-6505) about 19 years ago here in St Louis, Missouri. He is a world renowned automatic pistol expert and before the divorce had the most complete WWII German naval pocket pistol collection in the world. Post divorce he has started collecting French pistols and published the updated French Service Handguns book https://www.combatbooks.com/cgi-bin/store/detail.cgi?productid=749
He is also the life president of NAPCA (National Automatic Pistol Collectors Association) http://www.napca.net/ and is the life editor of their magazine AutoMag.”
How long have you been a knife collector?
“I guess I started with knives when I was 10ish. With my pops background I grew up in gun shows and always liked the blades better than the guns.”
Tell us more about Bob Tronolone’s knife collection
“All I know is that he had an incredibe site of pictures of knives. One day I emailed him about buying 1 and I ended up buying 6 or 7.”
What made you collect your first two Relentless knives? How did you find the knives? Knife show, internet, friend, etc?
“I, like my grandpa, like gadgets so anything that is different and out of the ordinary catches my eye which is exactly why I bought my first 2 relentless knives. I found them both online; my knuckle knife came from Bob Tronolone and the other I grabbed on EBay.”
Since you obviously know knives, what do you personally carry on a daily basis?
“What I’d like to carry and what I can carry are different things but I currently carry a Gil Hibben pro folder 2 by United cutlery and a Hibben custom double edged belt buckle knife.”
What would you consider the "perfect" mitary/tactical knife and why?
“Unfortunately being a collector and never having been in the military or hunting I have no reference on functionality of many knives ‘in the field’. Being a knife maker and connoisseur of blades I’m not sure it has been made. I would imagine it to be incredibly multipurpose, ergonomic and tough as nails. If I were to design it I would blend some Certo in with some Knox based on the BK&T RESQ DIV TUL prototype I have in the collection.”
So that is it for the first of a series of interviews coming to relentlessknives.com and the punisherknife.com websites. When you get a chance make sure to visit both Jeff Knox’s website at http://fightingknives.info and his father’s website at http://alamomilitary.com.

Interview with Mr. Moon, Owner of Special Edition Proto #0001 of the M4X Punisher KnifeThis is the second of a series of interviews of interesting people who either own Relentless Knives or were directly involved with the Punisher War Zone movie. This interview and is Mr. Moon, from France, who owns the first prototype of the Special Edition M4X Punisher Knife. His knife was made after the movie knives, in preperation for the Special Edition which is available Now.
by: Major Ian Humphrey
It was mis marked as #0001 rather the #1 so it's very rare.
If you spend any time on the major knife forums then you have likely read some of Mr. Moon’s comments. To describe him in one word would be “enthusiastic” when it comes to collecting and designing knives. Mr. Moon has an interesting history when it comes to knives and it all started in 2006 when he began a search for an M9 bayonet to go on his M4 rifle. He bought an M9 made by Ontario Knife Co. from a store in France only to discover a month later that EBay sold the same bayonet . The discovery on EBay led Mr. Moon to start researching the different models and manufacturers of the M16 bayonet and he soon started to collect many types of bayonets. You can see his impressive collection on his website: http://m9m4.com. One of Mr. Moon’s current projects includes designing a prototype bayonet that fits on an 11.5 inch barrel M4 rifle. This shortened bayonet is designed for close quarters combat and urban areas where a full length bayonet may be too awkward for actual use. Four prototypes are currently being evaluated by Lan Cay for possible production.
For Dan’s interview, we came up with six questions that concentrate on knife collecting and what makes an “ideal military knife.” It should be noted that English is not Mr. Moon’s primary language and he had to translate his answers into English for this interview, so some of the grammar may be off. But we certainly appreciate Mr. Moon taking the time to lend his expertise in Relentless Knives and military knives in general.
What is your favorite military knife?
My favorite (military) knife (S) are " 4 " ..... I can't choose only one .. It’s impossible: 1° .. SOG seal pup M37 (utility knife for " Pizza " eating etc etc ... 2° .. the M4X punisher for mountain, field woods ... etc ...... 3° the M9 bayonet naturally ...... and 4° .. The DARTMOOR WILKINSON another Monster Knife as the M4X.
Tell us more about yourself
I'm 41 .... I'm work since 5 years in an MEDIA-OFFICE-NATIONAL-INFORMATIONS-NEWS from my city the French Riviera..... I practice in a Shooting Club since my 18' .... I’d in the POLICE NATIONALE to 1986 to 1988 .... and after I’d make some others work in different ways .... as seller of house, apartment ... etc etc ...
How long have you been a knife collector and tell us more about your website?
Ian, u can use my home page presentation here:
Welcome to M9 M4 bayonet & survival knife. Firstly, the aim of these pages is not to retrace precisely and in detail the creation and history
of these weapons, other more specialist websites have already done this. Here, this is quite simply about a short period of my life, between
September 2006 and the beginning of 2008. Originally, my idea was to find " one " bayonet M9 and one only. As for the three
PROTOTYPE LANCAY CLEAR , they will be among my favorites . Owning one copy seemed inconceivable ,
but " 3 " different versions is a Miracle .....
... So , I’d see on that eBay , there was more different M9 with different " markings " ... and one day ... I’d ask as to the all sellers that I’d " see " ... the same question : .. " Sorry , per hazard , you do not know in your relations, somebody who would have a bayonet prototype as one CLEAR LANCAY M9 ? ".. and , one guy , in the middle of 2007 , said me : .. " Yes ! me !! I’ve 3 different CLEAR LANCAY M9 " ... and at this moment ... and after more mails with that guy ..... I’d finished buying this beautiful model ......... After that , I’d make a little website , WWW.M9M4.COM and , I continued to look for models which I did not have in my small collection .
All my search , come from eBay US ....Because , in France , it's impossible to buy on eBay France , a blade more long than approximately 4 inch (I believe) .. but , it's possible to buy in a dealer in my country ... The problem , it's , the bayo M9 is unknown here ! ahah.
For example , if I put some photo on a French forum , there's only a small quantity of guys who see (probably 60 guy's in 1 month !!!) in a forum US ,my maximum visit after my post of the Lancay clear was more 1000 in 3 days !
Concerning , my collection with M9M4.COM , I think I will finish when I would have found , the two last bayos that I search ! But that ... it's a secret !
What made you collect your first Relentless knife? How did you find the knife? Knife show, internet, friend, etc?
I'd see for the first time , some prototype made by him , on eBay in 2007 if I remember ..... And I 'd like quickly the design of his blades ......
One days ; I’d say (to me) I will take a knife of that incredible patriot guy !!!! ... The day was arrive at the end of 2008 with the Monster Knife , the M4X
Since you obviously know knives, what do you personally carry on a daily basis?
In fact , the law in France are VERY VERY different that in USA .... If the police find on your pocket a knife .... You go directly at the Police - Office .... and if it's a big knife ... it's a process !!!
In fact , weapons , knifes all that prohibited if u don't have a good reason !
What would you consider the "perfect" military/ttactical knife and why?
I consider " 2 " very perfect knife ! for me , it's the SOG seal pup , because is compact , with manageability , for as I said up , to eat .... The second it's a real big (not more) knife as the M4X It's the TOP if you go in a wild field .... to make some work with some parts of trees , or others important survival work .
So that is it for the second of a series of interviews coming to relentlessknives.com and the punisherknife.com websites. When you get a chance make sure to visit Mr Moon’s website at http://m9m4.com and watch for his enthusiastic comments on your favorite forums!
