The grafting tool is a simple product, which will allow you to make flawless omega grafts. The grafting tool can graft all kinds of plants, and is particularly well suited to grafting fruit trees. The clean cuts made by the tool allow you to get a perfect graft, every time.
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.
Easy to use - Create precise grafts quickly.
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.
Trimming blades - prepare stock for grafting.
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.
Replaceable grafting blade - make sure you always get a clean cut.
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.
SK5 high carbon steel blades - longer lasting strength.
How to create grafts
The grafting tool makes creating new grafts quick and easy. By following just three simple steps anybody can create professional quality grafts within minutes.
Step 1 - Prepare the plants to be grafted
Prepare the plants to be grafted, by removing all excess leaves and twigs. The tool contains a pruning attachment for this. The plant which will provide the roots is called the stock, or rootstock. The plant which provides the leaves, flowers or fruit, is called the scion.
Step 2 - Cut the rootstock and scion
The next step is to use the special grafting guillotine to cut both the rootstock and scion. This is normally the most difficult part of grafting, however with the grafting tool it's easy to create a flawless cut.
Step 3 - Bind the graft
Lastly bind the graft together tightly using black electrical tape. The extra heat under the tape helps the wound to heal and the graft to 'take'.
