About this tool
Every bonsai enthusiast needs a branch cutter as it is an essential item for taking care of bonsai. Branch cutters are used to shorten branches to the trunk.

It is also best designed to cutting the centre limb of a triple-forked branch. This cutter may also be used to prune garden trees.
