1 item left

The branch splitter is a specialist tool, part of our Japanese bonsai tool range from Kaneshin. It is one of those tools which cannot be substituted by something else when you need to make a particular sort of cut.

Branch splitters are used for splitting branches and trunks as the name suggests. Sometimes it is not possible to bend a branch or trunk due to its thickness and so by splitting the section where a bend is required you can make the bend possible. In time the split will simply heal over as the blades on the Kaneshin branch splitter is thin although strong. This use is the most common one for the branch splitter but there are many others.

  • It can also be used to separate a live vein from deadwood on junipers.
  • They may be used to break up a jin to enable you to peel pieces off using a jin pliers.

These quality Kaneshin tools are shipped in a retail box with a certificate of authenticity.

    Kaneshin Trunk Splitter, 210mm

    This is a well crafted tool. It is nicely balanced and extremely sharp. I performed my first trunk splitting last week with great results. It is good value for your money.

    Working perfect

    This is a spcialist tool but indisposable if you like dead wood. I use it for thread grafting. as always very good quility and fits snugly in the hand
