I'm writing an English article about an old Japanese letter cutter to make originals for letterpress matrices.
He made them with chisels only. No counter punch is used.
Since the originals he made are used for Electrotype Matrices, no Punch action, so I was wondering if I should call him "Punch cutter."
I'm looking for a proper word or a terminology in English to express him.
Does anyone know the terminology to express a craftsman like him.
Or may I call him a punch cutter?
Thanks in advance.
