【Video: Bonsai Tool Maintenance】
How do you clean your bonsai tools? Is there a correct way to sharpen them? Or any advice on how to generally proper take care of your bonsai tool kit?
If those questions have ever crossed your mind, you will enjoy this video, in which Wazakura Japan's resident bonsai artist Yusuke Ogawa explains and show the proper way to maintain and take care of your bonsai tools collection.
"This is a sturdy pair of shears. Being new to bonsai I was highly impressed. Large handles, sharp blades; Ifve found these to be easy to use and effective. "
"I've been using these for over 4 weeks now (to trim a small tree project) and I've not yet had an instance of regret with them. They cut cleanly (razor sharp from the factory), are comfortable to use and solidly built. These look like they can last a very long time before going dull, and shouldn't be too difficult to sharpen. They even have a bit of slack built in (shear tips cross each other a bit to account for future metal removal during sharpening) for that very purpose. My only caveat is that this is a forged, high carbon steel tool that will definitely rust if not coated after each use. If you use this tool enough to justify your time in caring for it, this is a wonderful choice. However, if this is only for casual use on very small projects, you'd probably benefit from a stainless version. Stainless (given that most companies use 440 A) will take far less of a beating than these will, but should hold up to light use just fine. "
