Existing Bonsai A To Z Entry for Trimming shears


Trimming shears

 - (Tool)
Trimming shears - Bonsai Tool Bonsai Care

Used for trimming twigs and small branches easily and precisely.

The handles are big enough to accommodate all fingers and also allow the picking off of prunings with the same hand without having to put the shears down. The rivet should be loose enough for the handles to fall open easily and not have to be pulled apart. The blades should be sharpened to a knife edge rather than a scissor edge in order to cut cleanly, without crushing.
