Trimming Scissors, or Thinning Shears

Thinning shears or Trimming Scissors are sharp, light-duty scissors that are used to trim twigs and remove leaves from our Bonsai

They have long thin cutting blades to be able to slide into dense foliage and long handles to allow the cutting blades to positioned well into the foliage, without having to push or bend the fine branch tips away from the hands
