Does the job for budding citrus and persimmons wrote

I purchased the knife for budding and grafting citrus and persimmons. The knife has met all of my expectations based on the description of the knife in the catalogue and my experiences in actually employing the knife over the past 12 months. The knife keeps a good sharp edge, and my main concern is not cutting myself! I like the "nose" at the top end of the blade as it is useful in opening up the stems when doing T budding. It would be useful if the knife has a hole or ring at the end for tying on a string so I could attach it to my belt, reducing the risk of misplacing it in the field.

Tina budding and grafting knives wrote

I teach plant propagation and have been using Tina knives for 30 years. It has been the standard in the nursery industry for many years. I have to admit that I do not have much experience with other knives because as I buy, lose and buy again, I buy the Tina budding and grafting knives. I like the feel and look of the handle and the blade holds a good cutting edge. It has the look of a horticulturist if you pull it out of your pocket. As my green thumb withers from time to time, it is nice to look the part anyway.
