"Anche l'opera d'arte più bella del mondo non avrebbe senso di esistere se nessuno potesse vederla. Grazie al fantastico lavoro di Francesco, alla sua professionalità e alla sua passione ognuno di noi può ammirare questi magici oggetti come se fossero realmente davanti a se ed imprigionati per sempre in una magica atmosfera... Grazie di cuore Francesco !"
"Francesco Pachi lives and loves custom knives. A former maker of the highest quality knives, he is now one of the world's finest photographers of these beautiful objects. His passion and talent are evident in the images he shares with others."
"Francesco Pachi, once a world-famous knife maker, is now a world class photographer. He is breaking new ground with his photographic techniques. The images he takes of knives and the backgrounds he uses are nothing short of revolutionary. Francesco is now creating magnificent books of knife collections which are as unique as they are beautiful. It is great fun to watch collectors become awestruck as they turn the pages of these books. Jim Schmidt deserves the very best, and he deserves Francesco Pachi to capture his life in pictures. We are honored to have Francesco as our photographer and partner in this book."
