The root cutter is designed with a very sharp edge to make cutting roots easy. The flat shape of the root cutter helps to make a flat cut along the root. This can aid in making it easier to fit a tree into a pot. The root cutter's shape also makes it ideal when working with deadwood. The harder, sturdier design helps to cut harder wood and to make angled cuts. The root cutter can also be used as a smaller trunk splitter. Stainless steel construction. Cutter measures approximately 7.5 inches. Made in China.
Our Eastern Leaf tools were designed with the novice and intermediate enthusiast in mind. After working on bonsai for over 15 years, Jason found that Stainless Steel tools were the easiest to work with around the nursery due to their durability and rust resistance. After researching for years, Jason was able to find a balance of quality and affordability to make it easier for everyone to practice bonsai. The entire line of tools includes the ones used most often when styling and maintaining trees in the nursery. Each tool is branded with "Eastern Leaf" in Chinese characters on the handle of each tool so you know that the tool has met the standards that will help you continue forward on your bonsai journey.
