Making Bonsai Scissors

Hi everybody 


I found this video on YouTube today and thought it may be of interest to some (looking at you @Jeff Amundson;)). I particularly like the little handle jig he uses at 3:47.

Thanks @Charles dP. Both the smith and the bonsai specialist have aged from these earlier videos.


I do most of my bending hot. Bending cold can lead to smoother curves, but good technique is required for both. He might be doing it cold because he doesn't want to heat up the handles he just filed smooth.
