Quickly and easily create professional quality grafts. The clean cuts made by the grafting tool allow you to get a perfect fit, every time. This increases the likelihood of the graft 'taking', leading to much less wastage. The 2 in 1 tool contains both a pruner and grafting guillotine. This allows you to first prepare the plants to be grafted, by trimming away excess leaves and twigs. Then using the special grafting guillotine you can make a perfect omega cut into the grafting stock.
Create precise grafts with ease
The tool allows you to quickly create omega style grafts. Even a novice can create perfect grafts with ease. The grafting blade is able to cut through stock up to 1.4 cm in diameter. Because the same blade is used on the root stock and scion, they will easily slot together and form a tight bond. The clean cut and snug fit increases the likelihood of the graft 'taking'. For professionals this means less money lost to wastage on grafts that don't take. For the amateur it means the confidence to experiment with grafting, without the worry of mastering complex grafting techniques.
Trimming blades for grafting stock preparation
The grafting tool also has small trimming blades. These can be used for preparing the grafting stock and scion. This allows you to work quickly without having to spend time swapping tools. Professionals will appreciate the speed and precision with which grafts can be made.
Replaceable grafting blade
When grafting, creating a clean cut is imperative. That is why the grafting tool features a replaceable blade. All blades on the tool are made from SK5 high carbon steel for increased strength and durability - but like any tool, with extensive use they will eventually lose their edge. When this happens, replacements can be bought. We carry a replacement blade (PK251).
SK5 high carbon steel blades
Both the trimming and grafting blades are made from SK5 high carbon steel. This means they will stay sharp for longer as well as resisting chipping and deformation. The blades have been hard-chrome treated which gives them better resistance to rusting.
The grafting tool features ergonomic handles for comfort while grafting.
