Pekka Tuominen. Francesco Pachi.

Продолжаем знакомство с Great Persons in the World of Knives.

As you know Francesco Pachi and me introduce our new project about Great Persons in the World of Knives.

The name of Francesco Pachi is well known for knife masters and not only for them.
A talented man is talented in any craft, so Francesco is known not only with his knife masterpieces highly appreciated by collectors: for a long time he was the head of, probably, one of the most famous knife Guilds in the world, the Italian Knife Guild.
Besides, he makes amazing photographs appreciated by collectors not less than his knives.
Currently he his occupied with photography only. But still the knife world, be these real knives, photographs, exhibitions, books, or anything else, here are his world and his life.

One publication by me - one photo by Francesco - one famous knife maker.

Франческо Паки и я представляем вам наш новый совместный проект.
Пожалуй, на сегодняшний день Франческо, в прошлом знаменитый найфмейкер, является самым известным фотографом, передать ножи для съёмки которому, уже большая честь.

Ни для кого не секрет, что ножи, которые появлятся в Каталогах,"приобретают дополнительную ценность".

Мы вместе с Франческо хотим рассказать вам о Людях, которые стоят за этими ножами.
Сейчас взяли подборку за прошлый и позапрошлый год и готовы пригласить вас в удивительный мир - the world of custom knives.

Today about Pekka Tuominen.

Пекка - удивительный человек. Обаяние, талант, чувство жизни и прекрасного - всё в нём есть. Он обаятелен и очень трудолюбив. И если вам повезёт - когда-нибудь у вас в своей коллекции будет его нож.

Кажется, ему подвластно всё в создании нового ножа: от идеи ло реализации.
Он Мастер полного цикла, скажем так.
Внизу я привела несколько фактов по годам. Если есть интерес узнать больше - он всегда на связи, спрашивайте :)

Pekka is an amazing person. Charm, talent, a sense of life and beauty - everything in it is. He is charming and very hardworking. And if you're lucky - one day you will have his knife in your collection.
