Suwada Bonsai Knob Cutter

A traditional tool to help cut branches in a way that allows the bonsai to heal faster. A knob cutter is not ideal to use for removing a whole branch at the trunk.

Using a spherical cut, this peculiar cutter makes a big difference in the way a bonsai looks as well as its recovery time. When we cut off a branch of a bonsai tree, the scar will appear like a lump on its trunk once it has healed. Cutting a little further in with a knob cutter ensures that the healed trunk will look flat.

In terms of sizes, a big knob cutter will save you some time and it will make a clean cut. A small one is suited to smaller branches and is easier to use to chew away any exposed parts of the main cut.

Suwada's knob cutter has been the preferred tool for Japanese bonsai growers for more than 70 years. The head is designed to cut small branches and clean the surface of a branch cut near the trunk.

Forged, shaped and sharpened by hand. The master craftsman who leads the bonsai team in Suwada Open Factory claims that they still haven't seen a machine making bonsai tools as precise and ergonomic.

Available in two sizes, and packed inside a traditional box, this is a perfect tool for anyone interested in starting to train bonsai trees.

Made to perform at high standards for a long time, using Japanese high carbon steel. It has a thin coating to prevent rust.
