In order to achieve beautifully shaped trees most bonsai artists will use aluminium or copper wire. The many hundreds of cuts needed to cut the wire to length or trim excess wire is made that much easier and less tiring with the correct tools.
These mini cutters made in Japan by leading Kikuwa craftsmen are ideal for bonsai enthusiasts who prefer smaller (shohin) trees which generally require thinner gauge wire. Alternatively when working on larger trees, these lightweight scissors speed up the work enabling you to quickly cut wire to size.
With the cutting action of a normal pair of scissors, this tool is naturally easy to use and very comfortable in the hand.
