The comfortable size of these small bonsai trimming scissors makes them ideal for use on a wide size range of bonsai including small, medium and even large trees. 

Also known as bud scissors, bonsai trimming scissors is the ideal tool for trimming leaves when defoliating, nipping out new buds and removing small branches. The blades being shorter than bonsai scissors, and smaller finger holes provide the best possible control of the tool when in use. This together with the overall more slender design enables the artist to reach into the canopy of a tree and make the required cuts with accuracy.


  1. Intended for twigs.
  2. Deciduous buds and pine candles can be cut.
  3. Other soft growth such as juniper foliage.

Yasuki Steels

SK Steel Carbon Steel. Used to make scissors, kitchen knives and other general cutlery
Yellow Steel A higher quality form of SK Steel, where more impurities have been removed.
White Steel More rigid than yellow steel. This material is often used for hatchets and Deba knives
Blue Steel One of the best steels available for general cutlery. It is produced by adding chromium and tungsten to white steel
Silver Steel A form of Yasuki steel which does not easily rust

In the past, craftsmen used coloured paper to distinguish various steels. Back then they used blue, white and yellow colour paper. This is the origin of the naming of steels which is still held till today. It does not refer in any way to the colour of the metal.

    Super bonsai scissors

    As said before, rather spend a little extra money and buy a superior quality tool like Kaneshin. This is a very sharp tool and the attension to detail will pay off as you shape and cut your priceless bonsai trees. I would highly reccomend this, as I am busy replacing all my cheapys with this super product

    Very happy with these scissors. They are light, incredibly sharp and feels like an extension of your hand. Very good value for money, especially if you consider that it it is handmade. The craftsmanship is superior.
