Default Let me introduce ... Gatto from Italy !

Hi all engravers,

I'm Ettore from Milano, Italy, my nick is "Gatto" (cat in english) and my "hello" in not "ciao" but "Miao" (miaow in english) 'cause all say i'm like a cat in all ..

I engrave only with CNC by now, but I feel my future is in hand engraving, this is the reason why I'm here to learn as much as possible from you before investing in air engraver.

If you want to see some of my "ugly" cnc engravings please go there http:www.gatto.com

Ugly because the feeling, the emotion and the "life" that an engraving made by hand is more and more intense that a cnc one. There is nothing to do.

I'm also trying to "emulate" acanthus hand engraving with cnc, attached some "on the fly" pics taken with compact camera just to show you.

Graphics are from Viljo Marrandi (http://www.knivesandengraving.com/20...1/#comment-211) I simply traced the artwork made by him with air graver on the Zippo lighter.

I hope to learn, I hope to share, even if I'm still cnc and not yet hand engraver.

Miaow
