Pasi Jaakonaho. 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.

Чудесный финский Мастер Pasi Jaakonaho, родившийся в 1971 году в деревне, где ножи изготавливали чуть ли не в каждом доме, кажется, и не мог бы выбрать для себя иной Путь.
К чести Мастера следует сказать о том, что он постоянно учится и совершенствуется. Его работы не только непосредственно ножи, он многогранен. На ножевом шоу в Хельсинки представлял более классический жанр: изысканный финские ножи. Простые и прекрасные, как
Antler inlay Puukko, что на фото выше.

Pasi Jaakonaho is a finnish artisan. He was born in Haapajärvi in 1971 and now is settled down in northern Finland, Inari. Pasi has made knives and other artefacts since 1993. In his works he likes to use finnish materials - such as birch, reindeer antler, birchbark etc. He is also familiar with (for instance) precious metals and Mokume Gane. As education Pasi is a Bachelor of arts and a Master Bladesmith (by Finnish National Board of Education). You can see more accurate CV here http://www.pasijaakonaho.fi/eng/cv_en.htm.


Pasi Jaakonaho:
“I got the first push towards handcrafting in 1993, when I left to go Inari in northern Finland to study as artisan. One of the areas of studies was puukko making. It was mainly about making traditional Sami puukkos. In my close family I don’t have craftsmen in particular, except Juho Jaakonaho who was well known maker of wooden skis. I was born in Pohjois-Pohjanmaa (northern Ostrobothnia), in small place called Oksava of Haapajärvi. It is a rural area, and it was normal there, that in every house they did some handcrafting.
I worked as full time knifesmith in 2001-2004. My shop in Simo was built in 1920.  My main product were puukkos and puukko blades. I did a little bit of of other forging work too and also I worked with bones and antler, wood and burl. Also I made some fishing lures.
Most part of learning I learned from making the puukkos, but I also had many teachers. To mention: Ilmari Laiti, Arto Saijets, Kari Pakarinen, Heino Tuomivaara. Currently I work in Inari in the Sámi Education Institute teaching forging, stag/woodworking and silverwork. www.sogsakk.fi Making puukkos is kind of a side-job. I have made more and more silver jewelery lately.
My philosophy in making puukkos and other handcrafts is to enjoy doing it. One of the most fascinating stages of making a puukko is forging the bar of steel into a blade shape, the way the steel transforms. In handcraft generally I appreciate the skill to work with different materials: how you can make a butter-box from a piece of birch or how the stag or a bone transforms into a part of knife’s sheath – how stag can be engraved. Of course I also wish, that my work would not stay in my possession, but that people have them and so it is nice to do new works and to improve.”
