Bonsai tree training usually involves wire to position and shape trunks and branches – wire is the “magic wand” of bonsai tree styling. But when wire goes on, it eventually has to come off. That’s where a good pair of wire cutters are mandatory.
It is good practice to remove training wire by cutting it off. Depending on how tight the wire has become around the branch as it has grown, it’s a good rule of thumb to cut the wire every time it circles the branch. Sometimes we leave the wire on a little too long before we realize that the branch is growing bigger and the wire is starting to penetrate into the limb.
The 6 1/2" Yoshiaki Carbon Steel Wire Cutter is the perfect combination of precision and power.
