Suwada Bonsai Wire Cutter

A traditional tool to help cut the wire around the bark or the branches of a bonsai tree. After its training is complete, removing the wires is a delicate job.

Suwada's wire cutter has been the preferred tool for Japanese bonsai growers for more than 70 years. The head is designed to cut the wire only without touching the bark or the branch with its blades.

In terms of sizes, the large cutter is ideal for thick wires (over 3mm). The small size is better for those who use thin wire but prefer to hold the cutter while wiring a tree.

This wire cutter is hand forged, shaped, and sharpened. 

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. Minimum maintenance is required. Just wipe the blades with some oil to prevent oxidation.


  • Material: High Carbon Steel
  • 100% made in Japan

We recommend this to anyone who wants to start or has started training bonsai trees. Carefully remove the wire without damaging the tree. This tool is made to last for years, so you can rest assured that can take a lot of wire cutting!

Dear Customer,

This is a verification to ensure bladed items are delivered to customers over 21 years old in the UK. Please tick the box and proceed with the checkout if this doesn't apply to you.

Please ignore this message if:

  • you are not based in the UK
  • you are not buying kitchen or steak knives

The UK government has prohibited the sales of bladed items via online shops to customers below 18 years old. This means that we have to verify your age in order to ship the two following items to UK addresses:

  • Kitchen Knives
  • Steak Knives

In case you did not choose any of these, please tick the box and continue your shopping. No age verification is required.

If you wish to purchase those items you will have to verify your age during the checkout and (minimum 21 years old) upon receiving your parcel with UPS. Accepted forms of ID are passport, a photo card driving license or a proof of age bearing the PASS hologram.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. We do our best to offer a seamless service and are ready to answer all your questions. Feel free to contact us if you have any queries regarding the purchase of a Japanese kitchen knife.
