Here’s something you’ve probably never thought about buying — unless you’re into Bonsai trees. (Cue pan flutes and ready Mr. Miyagi references…) But even if you’re not into miniature oriental trees, I hear that these are really great for pruning any small plants or for any kind of small gardening work.
The pictured set (from Bonsai Outlet) are 7-1/4″ and are hand-forged from carbon steel with laminated blades. They look quite nice and sell for about $40. Froogle turned up a number of similar sets starting around $20.
