Knives & Saws for Bonsai

Bonsai trees are kept small by pruning. Sometimes that pruning requires more than a simple pair of shears. Here we present a selection of knives and saws we have used on our nursery for over 20 years. Whether you are grafting, collecting from the wild or preparing wood for carving work there's going to be a tool here you need. These tools all have unique and special characteristics that make them useful in the creation and maintenance of bonsai. These tools are amongst the best quality of their kind and all come from well respected manufacturers.
