grafting knife


The orange handle makes this knife hard to lose or leave behind. We find that we can resharpen this knife with ease. The steel is not so hard that it takes forever to put a new edge.

Leonard Grafting Knife - Get this knife you won't regret it.


My first grafting knife as I get into citrus grafting. PROS: Very good value for the money. Bright orange handle - will stand out when placed on the ground in weeds when budding in the field. Am a lefty but can use it as a "rightie". So far (20-30 cuts), edge is like it hasn't been used. Use this knife and buy the Buddy tape here too and raise your success rate. CONS: Really best for a rightie with the flat edge positioned correctly. Not a con unless you are a lefty.

Grafting rookie


I have never grafted apple tree stock before. Upon looking at a number of options I chose the Leonard Folding Grafting Knife because it appeared capable of doing the job while not busting my wallet. I can say that the knife lived up to its expectations. I was able to make ten graftings in a couple hours time. The knife was sharp and accurate.

Worked well for me


This knife had a slight bevel on what I expected to be the "flat" side. I honed that bevel off to make the blade completely flat on one side. It worked very well for the whip and tongue grafts I used it for.

A.M. leonard grafting knife


I used this knife to graft several hundred trees in March. It fit well in my tightly closed fist during bench grafting. The orange color kept it from getting lost in the field. Great for peeling bark and whittling too.

A decent grafting knife for a low price


I bought three of these knives for a workshop teaching grafting on apple stock. They came workable, but needed washing (some oil on blade) and I touched up the edge a little. The orange handle is helpful in preventing losing track of them in a field setting, but if lost, they are fairly inexpensive. I would recommend it for similar situations of teaching or having lots of knives in the field.
