Suwada Bonsai Root Cutter
A traditional tool to help cut roots in a way that allows the bonsai to heal faster.
Using a clean cut, this cutter makes a big difference in the way a bonsai looks as well as its recovery time. When cutting roots we want to get as close as possible to the desired point using the best angle. The head shape of the root cutter allows just that. It is extremely sharp, so it doesn't take much force to use it.
In terms of sizes, it is straight forward. A big size is better for larger roots. A small size is better for small roots and very tight spots.
Suwada's root cutter has been the preferred tool for Japanese bonsai growers for more than 70 years.
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.
