What can you do with the scrap metal that remains after you have manufactured some of Japan's finest cutting tools including kitchen knives, cutlery, scissors, nail clippers, and tweezers? Niigata-based Sawada, one of Japan's most-famous companies in this industry with a history going back to 1926, proves that you can do something very imaginative with such waste material while at the same time promoting traditional Japanese culture: the SWD Art Lab Metal Bonsai Kit #3.
Included in the SWD Art Lab Metal Bonsai Kit #3 are a base, trunk, branches, and leaves that you can put together to make a beautiful bonsai miniature tree. The end result is 200 x 200 x 200 mm (7.9 x 7.9 x 7.9") and weighs a little over 500 g (or a pound). It looks amazingly like a real bonsai tree, the difference being that it's made wholly from pieces of stainless steel that would have otherwise been thrown away. Beautiful, unique, and environmentally friendly, this timeless bonsai will be the highlight of your Japanese artifacts collection!
