Kay Embretsen. 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 Kay Embretsen.

Работа была представлена на HKS 2018.

Kai Embretsen родился в 1957 году в маленькой деревушке Эдсбин, расположенной в 300 километрах к северу от Стокгольма. Увлечение ножами началось с традиционных скандинавов. К 20-ти годам у парня уже была некоторая коллекция.
В 1979 году Кай встретил старого кузнеца, который занимался изготовлением топоров, тот научил его формировать клинки, и хобби стало основным занятием.
С 26 лет Кай стал заниматься только производством ножей. Вначале это были традиционные скандинавские ножи, но очень быстро модельных рядрасширился.
Через пять лет он впервые попал на выставку авторских ножей в Нью-Йорке (New York Custom Knife Show), а затем было много других выставок и заслуженных наград.
Его складники чрезвычайно интересны.
