Wire cutters may seem like a trivial addition to your bonsai tool collection but they are actually one of the most valuable specialty tools you can invest in. While any old wire cutters may do for cutting the wire before applying it to your tree, this is definitely not the case when removing it. Training your bonsai involves wrapping the wire very closely to the bark. The best way to protect your tree from damage when removing the wire is to cut it off, and bonsai wire cutters are made specifically for that job. The tips are significantly shorter than normal cutters, which means the bark on the tree is protected from unwanted scrapes, cuts, and scars.
We carry a wide selection of bonsai wire cutters, from tiny wire/bud cutters at 4 5/8” to professional grade, extra large 14” cutters, including combination wire cutters/pruning scissors. Finishes include silver, black metal, stainless steel, mirror-polished stainless steel, and Fujiyama’s new “Super Black” line – their highly polished black metal with a clear, shiny coating applied which gives it the sleek look of a brand new black car. Many of our tools come with a warranty, so you’ll have peace of mind that they will serve you well for years to come.
