“What Kind Of Bonsai Tools Work Best?
There is a specific bonsai tool for every specific bonsai activity and using the
correct tool is the ‘best’ tool and the best way to get the correct results.
Tools for the practice of bonsai have been around for as long as bonsai itself
- thousands of years. So, it is not necessary, nor practical, for a bonsai
beginner to purchase a complete set of bonsai tools. As your interest in
bonsai cultivation grows, so should your collection of bonsai tools. With each
new bonsai endeavor you undertake, you will inevitably purchase the tool
necessary to properly perform that endeavor - trust me.
What Kind Of Tool Should You Purchase First?
Consider a pair of shears as your first bonsai tool. They will enable you to
keep your new bonsai neatly trimmed and styled. Bonsai shears are available
in many quality grades and even a mid-level grade is relatively inexpensive
and very easy to put to use.”
“What Kind Of Tool Should You Purchase Next?
As your interest in bonsai intensifies, and it undoubtedly will, you should
seriously consider purchasing a
concave branch cutter next. The concave
branch cutter, much like shears - and the majority of all bonsai tools - is
available here at Bonsai Experience.Com- in a number of quality grades and a
couple different sizes. The main function or use of a concave branch cutter is
to remove branches. As its name suggests, the shape of the cut mark left on
the trunk or branch is concave. When used properly, the concave branch
cutter leaves a wound that is somewhat taller than it is wider and slightly
concave; and this promotes the rapid and even healing of the wound, with
very little scarring. The concave branch cutter is indispensable to bonsai and
a great ‘next’ tool.
Other Tools You Should & Will Consider?
A pair of bud scissors, soil sieves, knob cutters, wire cutters, a root rake,
branch bender will all soon be tools you need and want. The Art of
bonsai is one that grows with you, literally and figuratively. As your bonsai
interest grows, so too, will your knowledge, skill level and tool collection.”
