Customer Reviews for Grafting Tool
Good tool but:
The blade must be sharp for it to cut cleanly. On mine the point of the v blade came down a little bit beyond the anvil so I had to make my own elongated anvil blocks out of hardwood.
Grafting Tool Review
I have wanted to graft pecan trees to get a pecan tree to produce papershelled pecans. I purchased the tool and was amazed about how easy the tool is to use. I do not have the full use of my hands to make the types of grafts needed. The tool works great and is fool proof. I have also used the tool to graft citrus trees. The tools ease of use makes grafting fun and easy.
Easy Grafting Tool
I have only used this tool to maintain a historic orchard and teach a grafting class for the Master Gardeners training. Success rate with omega, V cut and budding cuts has been well above average. Should be good for home gardener and professional alike. Takes a little time to get used to it how easy it is to use.
The tool is good but the blades are of marginal quality. I wish there were better blades available.
Grafting tool for apples
I am having a little problem with the tool cutting through the scionwood and rootstock. I finally turned the plastic plate upside down and it would cut better. The blade does not appear to be hitting the plate enough to make the cut complete. Once I get the cut I find it to be a very useful tool. Makes grafting apples much easier.

QUESTION: What is an Omega cut? ANSWER: An Omega cut looks like a horseshoe or jigsaw puzzle cut. (see "Blade Shapes" link below for a picture). QUESTION: What is a "Rounded V" cut? ANSWER: It is a "V" cut, but gently rounded at the bottom of the cut (see "Blade Shapes" link below for a picture).
Makes perfect cuts for better results!Uniform cuts for faster, more consistent grafts. Includes three blades, an omega cut, a "V" cut, and a budding ('T') cut. Complete with two anvils and instructions.
