About this tool
These SUWADA Pliers are primarily used to grasp wood fibres of newly made jin and to pull them to create a natural deadwood effect. They are also used to twist and wind wire around branches or to remove wire from branches. Their precisely aligned tips are suitable for fine work and will enable you to make compact bends by using the technique of bending the applied wire, rather than bending the branch.
