19cm Bonsai General Scissors

18 reviews

Scissors are the most commonly used bonsai tool and are the most crucial tool in the bonsai artists toolbox.

For the price, these black carbon steel 19cm scissors made in China cannot be beaten. You will be able to use them to cut twigs and even thin branches. Anything thicker and you should consider purchasing the Bonsai Branch Cutter.

The differences between scissors designed and made specifically for bonsai and normal scissors are many.

  • Bonsai scissors have a completely different shaped handle which makes a lot of cutting comfortable.
  • The blades are shaped differently and made considerably thicker to enable thicker cuts than a normal scissors can manage.
  • The tips of the blades also slightly overlap to enable clean cuts, which in turn enables faster healing.

    19cm Bonsai General Scissors

    When I received the item, the blades of the scissors were very rough and had two high spots that made the cutting action quite rough and tight. I separated the blades and ground them smooth, removing the high spots. I also ground the tips allowing for accurate, fine cutting. I am now very happy with them. Thanks for giving me an opportunity to give you feedback.

    Bonsai scissors

    I bought these as a basic starting point before I decided to invest in more expensive equipment, fully expecting them to be “adequate” enough to get the job done but not much more (after all scissors are scissors). However, after using them I’m pleasantly surprised. The handle is comfortable to grip and the blades cut smooth and clean. After use I clean them off and apply a bit of canola oil with a rag and they’re good to go for next time (one thing to note is that they do form a white scale if you forget to oil them although that’s simply down to personal negligence and is easily remedied). Overall a well made and sturdy pair of scissors that I expect will last me quite a few years.
