Urgent bonsai tool pricing question

Post  AK_Panama on Fri Aug 19, 2011 2:57 pm

Hello everyone,

I am being offered a Joshua Roth 11-inch concave cutter (the big one) for $110.00.


Is this a good price?

Not if this ( http://www.amazon.com/Bonsai-Concave-169-Joshua-Roth/dp/B000X7RZ9E ) is what you're getting.

You are asking about an 11 inch cutter, the one Jim found was an 8 inch for $80.
I think the $110 is about the going price, not a great deal

Jim,
Your link is for what seems to be an 8-inch cutter for about $80. If we price these tools per inch length, $110 for an 11-inch cutter seems about right! Wink

p.s., Billy got his post in while I was composing mine...

its ok if you need an 11 " cutter and are happy to pay the asking price- i never needed one so big personally but you may have some big branches to cut and hollow

All of my tools are Joshua, I think they are worth the price, you can't go wrong with them, in my opinion.

Joshua Roth tools are quality and if shipping is a significant cost, and it frequently is even in the US, then this is a good deal. I find I use the 11 inch cutter as much as I use the 8 inch, and tropicals get large quickly.

Thanks everyone!!!

I got the 11 inch concave cutter and a 11 inch knob cutter as well for the same price!

I was tired of having a go at those huge ficus with 8 inch tools. Huge differrence!
