Blackest of the black

This ink is perfect for coloring bonsai top-dressing components- very natural-looking results, and it was very easy to customize the amount of darkening for maximum realism .

Prompt Delivery

Even though I live in Ontario, product delivery was quick. Thank you.

Kaneshin 11

For the money, it’s tough to beat Kaneshin for value/quality.
The knob cutters fit my small/medium sized hand comfortably.


i will be using it in the spring on some evergreen that are doing poor. Will document. Ask me in July.

Typical Kaneshin Quality!

Another nice set of Kaneshin hand made scissors. They came very sharp, and they have a nice action. These are pretty burly, and they should handle some medium to heavy trimming. They are much more manageable than the crazy-large Kaneshin 41 scissors. Price is the only negative, but if you appreciate owning and using quality, hand made scissors, these are a great choice.

Order comments

Communication was excellent and shipping was fast. Thank you.

Good quality



Thanks! Great product!

Arrived quick and looks good.

Ordering was easy and the product arrived quickly. You get a good amount for your money. I will write another review after I've fully tried the fertilizer.

Decent quality

It's little hard right now, but overall I like it. And the shipping and customer service awesome!

Like this color which is hard to find in liquid paste.

Very good paste as described, very fast service.

Great Juice !!!

After going through 1 bottle, this seems to be a legitimate "juice" for your trees... everything they like in a form they can use... AND that was really fast shipping on this subsequent order of more bottles...

Great service and quality

It’s a pleasure to do business with Sumo. The Kaneshin concave cutter is great quality and makes.a huge difference from the bypass trimmer I was using on my garden bonsais.

I used these cakes last season and very happy with the seasons growth showing on a wide variety of conifers and deciduous trees. Excellent products, only couldn't get enough, so I hope you've stepped up to meet the growing demand.
I'm trying a couple of other products this coming season, acid mix cakes and the granules. Ask about those next fall, but I'm certain they will meet the same high standards as the original sumo cakes. Put me down as a sumo fan.

Superior craftsmanship; a pleasure to use

These "handmade" Kaneshin scissors are a great size for light to moderate duty trimming. The pair I received has no slop in the action, yet there is little if any resistance when using the scissors. They come sharp, and they touch up easily with a diamond or ceramic sharpening stone or rod. They are a pricey, but they embody craftsmanship from a bygone era and they are a pleasure to use.

Kaneshin #59 Tweezers

I have several Kaneshin tools and this set of tweezers is of the same high quality. They are stainless steel, powder coated black. As the season is winding down here in the midwest, they will not get a full blown workout until spring but have no reason to believe they will be anything but Kaneshin quality. The order arrived in a timely manner and I will be watching to see if Sumo Bonsai Supply has what I need and reorder from them as needed.

This was a gift. I have no knowledge about the performance of the wire

fertilizer tea bags for Bonsai

It is winter here and have not used them

Callus Mate

Easy to use and works as described. Helps heal over cut sites nicely.

First pair of real scissors

I am new to bonsai and these are my first pair of pruning scissors. So far they cut like a hot knife through butter and I love them.

Kaneshin tools

Super sharp and accurate. Great customer service with honest and helpful advice.

Kaneshin Tools

Tools seem sharp and very well made. Great price and exactly as described, delivery was quick and easy. Will be buying again from Sumo in the future thats for sure.

Easy to use

Easy ordering and fast delivery with tracking. Using the Buddy tape to coax some cuttings to bud that were not doing anything. Too early to tell if will work. Fingers crossed!

Very nice case, thanks sumo!

Buddy Tape

Awesome product, been using Paradigm, this is a much better product , seals the scions better, well worth the additional cost.
Definitely will buy it again.
