Tools & More Tools

Who knows where the path might go?

Featuring Joshua Roth

professional grade tools

Made of the highest quality Japanese carbon steel to last a lifetime.

When I finally decided I deserved some real bonsai tools the first purchase I made was a pair of Joshua Roth concave cutters. That was over 20 years ago and despite lots of hard use on lots of hard wood they still work perfectly and are my favorite pair.

They are a little more expensive than some bonsai tools, but in my opinion they are well worth the price. As my friend Al used to say, "Andy, quality only hurts once."

I can order any Joshua Roth or Ryuga tool listed on their website. 50% deposit required. The tools I have pictured here are what I am keeping in stock. Free shipping via Priority mail on all tool purchases over $100.
