резцовая гравюра

Definition from http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki:
В зависимости от способа обработки (гравирования и травления) формы гравюра на металле также подразделяется на виды: гравюра резцом на меди, офорт, меццо-тинто, акватинта, сухая игла и др. Для создания рельефа в этих случаях используется либо механический способ (резьба с помощью иглы, резца и т. п.), либо химический (травление кислотой).

Example sentence(s):
  • Резцовая гравюра и офорт относятся к техникам глубокой печати: изображение процарапывается (а в случае офорта - протравливается кислотой) на металлической поверхности (Стенли Уильям Хейтер). - Живопись. Краткий сло

Yes  Michael Korovkin: именно резцовая (that is, without the use of acids): a pure dry–point engraving. Because as opposed to English, in Russian "etching" is also “гравюра“
