ARS TOREUTICA

The art of EMBOSSMENT and CHISEL, "the TOREUTICS" is noble and ancient.
The TOREUTIC were held in great esteem and honoured in ancient Greece where this Art had earned the maximum levels.
The CHISEL is one of the numerous uncutting tools fit to create any decorative drawing with hammer blows on metal leaves.

These small steel bars, long about 11 cm, with the tip modelled in an appropriate and tempered way, are made by the chiseller himself according to his needs and their number changes according to the kind of working. On the average the necessary chisels are about 250. The picture show my chasing tools with one hammers set.
