The Professional Italian Grafting Tools are designed to cut both the scion (the shoot or bud to be grafted) and the rootstock, the main plant onto which the graft will be made (usually chosen for its strong roots). Proper alignment of the two parts is essential to the success of the graft – it allows a structural union that does not impede the essential transfer of nutrients to form as the graft heals. The pro Grafting Tools ensure proper alignment by using the same blade for cutting both the scion and the stock, whichever the type of graft.

The Standard Grafting Tool is appropriate for stock up to 1/2" in diameter. It performs three types of grafts – V-graft and Omega-graft, as well as, budding or T-graft (in which a single bud is inserted into the side of the stock) and includes a special blade for each type (full instructions on changing blades is included). The Large Grafting tool will handle larger stock and comes with a V-blade and Omega-blade that will cut a side-notch in stock up to 1-3/4” in diameter. Also included FREE with both tools is the booklet, Grafting Fruit Trees, an excellent introduction full of instructional illustrations and the basic whens, whats and hows (a$3.50 value).

Additional tools recommended (whether you are an apprentice or experienced) are a Curved Grafting Knife, Special Grafting Wax, and a roll of 3/4" wide Special Paraffin Grafting Tape.

Grafting is a fascinating and challenging aspect of gardening. It is used to adapt plants to unfavorable soil or climate conditions, repair damage and control pests. Grafting allows the gardener and arborist to provide a longer growing season and a greater diversity of plant varieties. It is a versatile technique with a degree of technical, scientific content; it will take a bit of time and practice to become proficient. Yet, a gardener with a few skills can actually assist nature (much like a midwife) while increasing his garden’s bounty and enjoying a very rewarding endeavor.

  • Grafting Large Rootstocks

    Humberto Guitron, 5/15/2015 Very precise cuts that increase the percentage of success on every grafting activity. Precise cuts on large stocks, but prefer to use the conventional grafting technique for plants of this proportion.
  • Above Average

    Matt, 9/22/2014 Tried it on disposable cherry and apple branches in late summer worked pretty well, but is not a substitute for practice with a great knife. Success will be had with this tool.
  • Works For Me!

    Clark, 2/1/2014 Tried a few saddle graft tests today and it makes precise cuts on pencil sized wood.
  • Grafting Tools

    Forrest, 12/20/2013 The grafting tool and supplies are fine quality and work very well. Although my grafting skill set needs some improvement. I recommend these tools.
  • Nice Tool

    Bruce, 4/6/2013 Good tool, I recommend it.
  • Best Place To Buy

    John P., 3/30/2013 Garret Wade has by far the best price on these tools!!!!!! and the only one I found that carries the large grafting tool. They are well built and work well!!!! Once again thanks for the great price on an exceptional tool set.
  • Great Grafting Tool!

    Jan, 2/16/2013 I got interested in fruit tree grafting and wanted a better and safer way than using my sharp pocketknife. I purchased the standard grafting tool. After only a few grafts I can see it does accurate cuts and makes the job faster and easier. So glad I got it!
