Jin Pliers aren’t for beginners, but they are awesome. Jin Pliers are used to carefully remove or peal back bark for the purpose of drying out the under-lying wood. The resulting “jin” is used to give the illusion of age.
This technique is used to produce the general aesthetic of weathering, fire damage and age. Jin can also be used to hide unsightly defects in the wood (rather than trying to cover up a blemish, the artist embraces it). Our Jin pliers are perfect to produce that rough and weathered look.
With a long nose and gripping mouth, our Jin pliers are perfect to give that rough and weathered look.
They’re also perfect for related Bonsai tasks such as wiring, gripping, twisting and squeezing.
