Suwada Bonsai Trunk Splitter
A traditional tool to help split the trunk or a branch of a bonsai tree, without damaging any vascular bundles.
Suwada's trunk splitter has been the preferred tool for Japanese bonsai growers for more than 70 years. The head is designed to split the branch or trunk in one clean move.
This unique bonsai tool is hand forged, shaped and sharpened. 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 item 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.

We recommend this to anyone who wants to start or has started training bonsai trees. The image of a bonsai can be a lot more dramatic with the good use of a trunk splitter.
