The Trunk Splitter is designed to split trunks with minimum residual damage. The shape of the head and the symmetrical cutting blades provide the clearance and cutting actions necessary to achieve clean splits.
Trunk splitters also serve a variety of specialized purposes. Their shape allows you to make a deep cut directly in the center of thicker branches. By doing so, it will enable you to relieve some pressure on the branch and make it easier to bend it. Trunk splitters can also be used to create gouges in the main portion of the trunk to promote thickening of the root base.
The overall length of the cutter is approximately 206 mm. Comes with a Ryuga branded tool pouch.
Maintenance and care.
If properly maintained these will last you a life time. If you have carbon steel tools, the best way to keep them looking shiny and glossy is to use oil such as tsubaki oil or just ordinary wd-40. Spray or apply the oil directly to the carbon steel tools and then wipe them off immediately. This will not only help preserve the shine in the metal but also help against rust if you've accidentally left them out in the rain.

"Passion is the biggest determinant of a grower's success"
Bonsai was a passion, which was sparked at a very young age of 12, when I used to go out with my uncle to collect specimens. The beauty of the trees sitting in their pots, small yet majestic grew over me through the years and completely engulfed me in their magnificence. Having lived in different continents and countries, I have owned numerous bonsais over the years and always have had this unsatisfied hunger for more.
I am a Botanist and a certified Horticulturist. I have been living my dream with plants for the last 25 years. Having now settled down in Alberta, the love affair with the “tree in the pot” continues.....
