The Valflex (バルフレックス) is only known through a brief mention in an article by Tanaka about the Ricohflex and Ricohflex B wartime TLRs. It seems that the name Valflex (actually Barufurekkusu) was listed among other 6×6 TLRs in an official price list dated 1941. Nothing else is known about this camera, no surviving example is known and no picture has been observed so far.
