Rick Eaton. Francesco Pachi.

Вторая часть знакомства 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.

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 Rick Eaton.

Mediterranean Fighter

This knife is done in a traditional styled blade with a modern flare, blending old styles with today’s quality.
Blade is twisted ladder mosaic Damascus with arabesque style engraving accents and Damascus fittings.
Sole authorship piece.

Работа была представлена на AKI 2015.
Американский найфмейкер Рик Итон в мире ножей проделал долгий путь и получил заслуженную славу. И продолжает радовать коллекционеров своими прекрасными работами.

Лично мне очень импонирует, как у него обозначены гарантийные условия : главное, чтобы нож использовался исключительно в качестве режущего инструмента.

Рик человек довольно открытый и на своём сайте написал о себе всё, что требуется знать :) :

" Thank you for your interest in my knives. I started scrimshawing in 1979. I made some buckskinner knives in 1982, and started engraving in 1983. I started making handmade knives in 1984, after learning from my father. In 1993 I went full time into knifemaking & engraving, quitting my job as an operating engineer. I have been a voting member of the Knifemakers Guild since 1997.
Although I make all kinds of knives, I prefer one-of-a-kind art pieces. My specialties are art folders and art daggers. With folders, I offer several models with a step-down on the handle front, which gives the illusion of being a fixed blade. The locking-liner and sidelock knives are one-hand opening, using the back edge on the blade which is hidden when the knife is open, giving it a more pleasing appearance. On sidelock folders, each side is milled out of one piece, making a very strong knife.
Steel: I use 440C (Rockwell 58-59), 154CM and ATS-34 (Rockwell 61-63) and Damascus in my knives.
Grind & Finish: I offer mirror or satin finishes in hollow- or flat-ground blades.
Fittings: 416 & 410 stainless steel are my standard materials for fittings. I also offer nickel silver, blued steel, sterling silver and gold.
Handles: I offer exotic woods, abalone, pearl, ivory, horn, stag, coral and stone.
Sheaths: Folders come with a fitted leather pouch. Working knives are supplied with a handmade leather sheath. Fixed blade art knives are supplied with a zipper case. I also offer metal tipped and all metal sheaths at an extra cost.
Engraving: My knives feature very fine hand-engraving in a variety of styles in microscopic detail. Prices quoted are on an individual basis.
Custom Work: I welcome the opportunity to aid you or design for you a special knife that will have more meaning to you personally. Priced are individually quoted.
Terms: I require a 10% deposit on all knives ordered. My delivery times vary depending on the size of the job. I will give you an approximate delivery date at the time of deposit. Full payment is due on completion.
My Guarantee: My guarantee covers workmanship and materials. This assumes the knife is used properly as a cutting tool. Obvious abuse will void the guarantee. This guarantee excludes natural materials, as many of these can check or develop cracks with age. If you are not completely satisfied with your knife, return it within 10 days for a full refund."
