Shop with confidence, now serving from two locations, One in Edmonton, Alberta and from Brampton, Ontario.
These tools are specifically designed for cutting & pruning roots during transplanting and re-potting. Unlike Knob Cutters, which have spherically-contoured heads, the wide cutting blades of the Root Cutter are straight. The blades are much stronger for cutting the denser wood fibers usually found in roots. The head is contoured to provide added clearance.
The root cutter's shape also makes it ideal when working with deadwood. The harder sturdier design helps to cut harder wood and to make angled cuts. The root cutter can also be used as a smaller trunk splitter.
The overall length of the tool is approximately 270 mm. This is a large cutter. Comes with a Ryuga branded tool pouch.
Maintenance and care.
If properly maintained these will last you a life time. Always when you have finished your work, sterilize your tolls. Oil the moving parts of the tools and wipe everything down with a cloth to prevent debris from getting into the mechanisms and to keep the shine on your tools. All tools should be placed in a pouch, roll, bag, to protect them from the elements and avoid getting damaged. 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 tools and then wipe them off immediately.

"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.....
