Tools

Image of bonsai shearsBS 800 Heavy Duty Bonsai Shears 2 1/2 inch blades, overall length is 8 inches. These large handled bonsai shears are the most versatile tool in my box. I use them for all sorts of jobs. For bonsai they are used to prune small branches, and remove leaves. For general garden use they can be used for deadheading, general perennial pruning, trimming shrubs, cutting back grasses, etc. Your hand and thumb fit inside the large handles so no return spring is necessary. They are very strong, comfortable to use, and cause little fatigue. I find this size best for most people and most jobs. Those of you with smaller hands should consider the smaller version below, BS 775. Carbon steel. $39.00

BS 775 Regular Duty Bonsai Shears Blade length is 2 1/4 inches, overall length is 7 3/4 inches. These shears are identical to the ones above but are slightly smaller and lighter in weight. Carbon steel. Not pictured.
$33.00

Small Bonsai ShearsBS 475 Small Bonsai Shears Blade length is 1 3/4 inches, overall length is 4 7/8. These shears are identical to the Regular Duty Bonsai Shears above, but are smaller, for small delicate work. Excellent for work on Mame bonsai, the small handles give a very fine degree of control. These are little gems. Carbon steel. $27.00.

Leaf and Branch ShearsLS 850 Leaf and Branch Bonsai Shears Blade Length is 2 1/4 inches, overall length is 8 1/2 inches. These shears are a different shape from the above shears. The handles are smaller and longer, but still accept your whole hand. The smaller handles give you a finer degree of control. The thin blades and long thin profile are ideal for reaching into bonsai to prune small branches and trim leaves. Carbon steel. $36.00

Small Leaf and Branch ShearsLS 650 Leaf and Branch Bonsai Shears Blade Length is 1 3/4 inches, overall length is 6 1/4 inches. These shears are identical to LS 850, but smaller for more delicate work, or smaller hands. Carbon steel. $27.00.

Concave CuttersCC 800 Concave Branch Cutters Overall length is 8 inches. Concave cutters are the only tool for which there is no western equivalent for those just starting bonsai. There is nearly universal agreement that this is the one specialized tool you will eventually have to buy to continue training bonsai. The angled jaws allow you to head back and remove branches very close to the trunk or main branch. They also make a slight concave depression which will heal over cleanly, without a bump. Carbon steel. $35.00 SOLD OUT!

SCC 775 Spherical Concave Branch Cutters Overall length is 7 3/4 inches. These concave cutters do the same job as the ones above, but the jaws are curved. This produces a rounder and smoother concave depression. Not pictured.
$55.00 SOLD OUT!

KC 825 Spherical Knob Cutters Overall length is 8 1/4 inches. Knob cutters are for removing stubs, knobs, and other protrusions from trunks and branches. They are also excellent curving tools for large cuts, allowing you to quickly remove disc shaped bites of wood to shape large saw cuts. This is done to improve taper and produce depressions in otherwise flat saw cuts, allowing a smooth section of scar tissue to form. I use them all the time for large work, those working with small bonsai only can use concave cutters as a replacement. Carbon steel. Not pictured.
$39.00

WC 800 Wire Cutters Overall length is 8 inches. These wire cutters have straight handles and very short strong jaws at the tip. They are for cutting wire and removing wire from bonsai. Since they cut at the very tip they can remove wire from branches by nipping it about every inch or so, and allowing the wire to fall off. This is the recommended method of removing wire. It should never be unwound from the branches. There is too much danger of scarring the branch, or breaking nearby small branches. Carbon steel. Not pictured.
$39.00

Folding SawFS 325 Folding Saw Blade length is 3 1/2 inches. The blade of this little saw folds neatly back into the handle for compactness and safe storage. The teeth are very small and it produces a remarkably fine (smooth) cut. It is used for trunk chops and removing larger branches.
$23.00 SOLD OUT!
