Julie Warenski.

Вторая часть знакомства с Great Persons in the World of Knives.

Имя Julie Warenski вы уже встречали и в этой подборке - когда речь шла о некоторых других Мастерах. Сегодня непосредственно о ней самой.

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.

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 нсколько прошлых лет и готовы пригласить вас в удивительный мир - the world of custom knives.

Today about Julie Warenski.

The basket has an oval cabochon made from the same piece of black jade gemstone that the handle is made from.
The entire knife has a total of 16 separate components to construct this ornate art dagger.
Blade is marked J. Warenski and is a sole authorship piece.
Работа была представлена на AKI 2015.

"My career in custom knifemaking began in 1986 when I met Buster Warenski who taught me the art of engraving.  I was taking an engraving class, which he taught, and later that year we were married.  Within one year I was engraving every knife we made and also engraved for many other knifemakers and customers all over the world.  Over the years I worked in many areas of knifemaking helping with knife designs and also making many parts of our knives, as well as doing all the embellishment on them. We had a great marriage and awesome relationship until he was so unexpectedly taken away forever.   He used to joke that he was going to teach me how to grind the blades so he could just retire, but I quickly let him know that there was no way this was going to happen.   I often wish now that he had taught me his techniques to grind the knife blades.
After Buster’s passing, I had a strong desire to make knives and continue to make the great art knives that I had worked on and had a unique partnership with for the past 20 years.  A past student of Buster’s, Curt Erickson, had offered to help teach me to grind the way Buster had taught him.  He was the only person Buster had really tutored in knifemaking and I graciously accepted his offer.  After working with Curt and with his help I won the Buster Warenski award for the best Art Knife at the New York knife show in February 2006.   We were married in 2006, and now work together in a new and exciting partnership in knifemaking. There will be many fabulous knives in our future together as we are dedicated to making some of the best art knives possible." ( )
