The local style of chasing has come into being during a long period, which is characterized by the distinctive shapes of the articles, as well as by the techniques and artistic methods. Uzbek chasing represents various ways of engraving. The more deep engraving is called kandakori, the less deep-clean engraving is known as chizma. In addition to engraving' Uzbek masters use notch chasing, shabaka.
