Concave cutters are an indispensable tool in the bonsai artist’s supply collection. The purpose of these cutters is to allow you to prune your tree in a way that minimizes trunk damage and speeds healing time, stimulating the tree to produce a smooth finish that blends in with the rest of the bark. Concave cutters do a great job at eliminating those unattractive stubs and nubs that result from pruning. If there is one bonsai tool that has no substitute, it’s this one. There is simply no household tool that can match the angle that these cutters provide.
We carry all sizes, from 5 ¾”, good for bud nipping, to heavy duty 10 ¾” top of the line cutters made by Fujiyama, a quality leader in bonsai tools. These cutters are handcrafted to the highest quality standards by some of the most respected bonsai masters in Japan, and come in a variety of finishes including black metal, stainless steel, and mirror-polished stainless steel. For extra ease on your hands choose a pair of our vinyl-clad cutters, which feature handles coated in a comfortable rubber coating. We also carry versions with spring-assist, which helps ease the work of cutting.
