Concave Branch Cutters, known in Japan as Mataeda Hasami are razor sharp tools designed for cutting branches flush to the trunk. The resulting wound can then heal over quickly with little scarring. The Concave Cutter is the single most important tool for Bonsai use and for which there is no substitute.
Ryuga Branch Cutter. A must have tool for removing unwanted branches from your medium and larger sized bonsai trees. This branch cutter has a rounded blade for leaving hollows when making cuts. They aid in a quicker healing times by allowing the cambium to roll over into the wound.
The overall length of the cutter is approximately 205 mm. Comes with a zippered storage 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.....
