My pair of Yasugi 7” Traditional bonsai scissors excel during root-work. These high-strength scissors cut through thick roots cleanly, important for healing. They are also precise enough to trim fine roots, allowing me to work quickly without having to constantly swap tools. Root scissors often come into contact with soil and debris, but I find the Yasugi steel holds its edge, resisting dullness well. Given how sharp they are straight out of the box, I’m confident I will be able to hone the blades easily - when the time eventually comes.

I have arthritis in my hands so I especially love that the design of these shears allows me to put my whole thumb in and work for hours without pain. They are so well-balanced and they are a good size, weight, and length. The blades cut effectively all the way to the tip which allows for precision cutting. They are amazing to use when we thin tiny maple leavest.
