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.

The film was made by Giorgio Affanni and Gabriele Chiapparini.
