TOPIC: Show me your tools!

Show me your tools! 2 years 3 days ago #37542

80% of the time I've been using always the same set of tools: chopsticks, root and foliage scissors, tweezers and wire cutters.
Also this Kaneshin jin pliers that doubles as a wire bender, very useful.
Most of the tools are japanese from Kaneshin, but some are chinese. The difference in the cut and hardness is very clear.
How about you, what have you been using and why?

There is the concave cutter also, too big to be in the tool case.

Poeh, I have loads of tools now. I need a new nobcutter, and was looking at what to buy actually.

This is an overview of what I had some 4 years ago. Since then, I have added large root splitters, a very small nobcutter and a new concave cutter (As I bent the one in this picture).

Most of mine are no-brand tools (Or at least, I do not know the brand). I was lucky: When I bought my first tree, the guys I bought it from was stopping completely with the hobby, and gave me his duplicate tools. So I only bought a few items myself. :) Since then, I have spent too much on tools but well. A good tool will pay for itself in the reduced annoyance. I find however, that also cheap tools work well, as long as you don't push them too hard.

I like your foldable saw, bigger than mine!
Is your number five only a rake?

So I bought one myself.

UPDATE: Got some time ago a leather roll tool case so I've been using two sets, a small one for quick work like trimming and light pruning, and the roll for all other chores.
Almost all tools are Kaneshin, including the sieves. As a good surprise, some are Ryunga, they work well.


The two sets, complete.

The two cases.


The roll.

Thanks.
In fact I have purchased a new tool, based on Peter Chan's experience.
It's a Japanese flat pruner sold by Kaneshin but made elsewhere, and this is the most versatile tool one can have; from delicate cuts (like leaves and needles) to moderate sized branches, it is ready for all.
Always in my belt.
Highly useful.
