Koyo Masters Grade Stainless Trunk Splitter 8"
Have you tried a trunk splitter? If not, there's no better time than now. You'll be amazed at the results you can achieve once you take the plunge. For example, you can use it to create two or more trunks from one, to split off section of trunk for powerful shari (deadwood) and to prepare large branches or trunks for bending. Other stuff too if you have an inventive bent. No bonsai pro or serious enthusiast would be without one.
