As with the fertiliser, I am not going to bother trying to suplly all the same tools as everyone else on the web. If you want anything standard then go to:
EU: Bonsai Plaza
Just tell them you came from here and then come back. What they don’t offer however are specialist tools that are lacking in the normal market place, such as these cut anything hardcore scissors.
Chinese made from very strong stainless steel, they are neither delicate nor heavy and coarse. They hold their blade very well and will cut through aluminium wire up to 3mm with ease. I have been using the same pair for over three years as general purpose scissors and wire cutters. they still work fine without having sharpened them once. Many people have commented on them at demonstrations and workshops and looked on in disbelief.
They are not for delicate jobs such as defoliation or decandling pines, but for an all round pair of scissors that will cut anything and keep going for years, you will find no better.
