This is my first and best bonsai cutter that I have bought from Japan, birth place of this beautiful art. Did lot of research and fixed on this cutter as wanted the best and though not available in India, had to import it with additional cost but its worth. Cutting of branches so clean and sharp. Hopefully it will help to keep my interest going for bonsai as it requires lot of patience to create a good bonsai.
The branch cutters have some burn marks on them from sharpening or polishing. They cut very well but aesthetically look a little cheap. The sides are not proportioned to each other as well and so it looks oblong as opposed to similar curvature, but do meet in the middle ok. I wouldn’t have bought these had I known
Used my new tools today and I must say they are most excellent. Fantastic price beautifully made.
"Been using this a lot to cut branches. Handy, quality, and sturdy. Must have if one plan to start experimenting with crafting bonsai tree. "
