Watch a Punchcutter Painstakingly Carve Out a Single Letter

It’s hard to imagine a time when making a single letter appear anywhere required more than a single keystroke but watching former head punchcutter Giuseppe Bracchino of Nebiolo in Torino, Italy carefully carve out the letter G from steel, you start appreciating everything a little more.

It’s really interesting to see the tools he uses and to see how skilled and exact he is when shaving down the steel.
