An update on Chinese Bonsai tools. Please read before ordering.


In 2002 I wrote a warning about the poor quality of Chinese bonsai tools. At that time both the materials and workmanship were greatly inferior to Japanese bonsai tools, so I declined to offer them to my customers.
In the mid 1980's the same was true of Chinese bonsai pottery, but by the mid 1990's the quality had equaled, and in some cases surpassed that of Japanese pottery. Today, almost all our bonsai pottery comes from China.
When I wrote my warning in 2002, I noted that the day would probably come when Chinese bonsai tools were equal to Japanese tools, but that day had not yet come. As the price of Japanese bonsai tools continues to rise & rise, I'm happy to say that both Joshua Roth and Kiku have introduced a line of Chinese bonsai tools equal in quality to Japanese tools at considerably lower prices. These tools have been lab tested and the quality and hardness of the steel match the higher priced Japanese tools. I am unable to see any difference in the workmanship, so as of now, 11 years after my 2002 warning, we are happy to offer our customers a quality alternative to expensive Japanese bonsai tools.
We will continue to stock a full line of Japanese tools, but in the months ahead we will continue to expand the selection of Chinese tools as quality alternatives become available. Please note that there are still plenty of low quality Chinese tools out there, so be aware of what you're ordering.
The Japanese tools will remain in black type. The new Chinese tools will be listed in Blue to make identifying them easier.
