Master Glass Cutter

Here is another scene from the past. This old glass cutter has lived and traded from his shophouse for the past 40 years. He's going to be 80 this year! I guess he'll never really retire since he LIVES on the top floor of his shop. He'll just stay open for as long as he lives in this place.

The sifu (master) still uses the traditional tools (perhaps from 40 years ago??) where a fine balance is required to actually make a cut on glass. Take a look at all his tools.
