Tools and Wire in an Affordable Package

The package includes the two essential bonsai shears/tools you need to get started, along with 5 rolls of 100g wire of different thicknesses.

In the beginning, a sharp kitchen scissors may be sufficient, but as you take the step into the world of bonsai, it’s important to have tools that provide clean cuts and are easy to use.

The twig shears are a long and narrow bonsai scissors from the Chinese brand Dingmu. The elongated and pointed shape allows you to reach inside the bonsai crown without accidentally cutting off other branches or leaves. The long handle also provides good leverage for cutting branches and not just simple plastic packaging like kitchen scissors. The cuts are clean and neat without the wound splintering, minimizing liquid loss and the surface area for diseases to attack the pruned tree. The tip is slightly crossed to allow cutting all the way to the tip.

Concave branch cutters are bonsai pliers from the Chinese brand Dingmu, used when cutting slightly larger branches on the tree. The concave cut allows the wound to grow over and heal over time. It is advisable to apply wound sealing paste for larger cuts, both to protect the tree from liquid loss and to guard against viruses and fungi that could otherwise enter the wound.

Aluminum wire is used to give the trunk and branches the desired form. You wrap the branches with aluminum bonsai wire that is about 1/3 of the thickness of the branch. Thinner wire may have difficulty maintaining the shape of the branch depending on the tree species. However, avoid wrapping with wire that is too thick, as you may accidentally break branches while bending the wire. You can also use thicker wire to bend branches by, for example, creating a hook attached around the trunk or around the base of another branch.

Bonsai wire is removed most safely with a wire cutter. At the same time, you can reuse the wire if you unwind it, but during this process, there is a risk of breaking branches. Be very careful!
