Bought this as a gift for my horticulture loving husband. I have the hardest time finding him gifts but they were a hit! He loves these grafting pruners and has been playing around with it ever since. He reports that they are really good quality!
However, the logistics speed is a bit slow, I received the product 2 days more than expected.
This tool made grafting easy. I have been trying for years to “save” a very old heirloom apple tree and have been grafting by hand with very limited success. The tree just doesn’t put out a lot of good scions. I bought this tool and grafted 31 root stocks this spring. 29 of them took! So I’ll give it 5 stars because it works. The only downsides are. 1) no instructions for changing blade 2) blade is soft metal (after 31 grafts the first set is completely dull). 3) the carrying case is a bit cheesy. 4) only came with one extra blade...not 3 as shown in the picture. 5) might cut 1/2” if blade is new, but after about 1-15 cuts, 3/8” was absolute max it could cut. I listed quite a few negatives but for a hobby Gardner this is a fantastic value.
This thing is amazing!!!!
Grafted over 30 trees with multiple grafts on each tree. Blade is still extremely sharp. It works flawless I bought another one for my dad! I had been trying for years to get my fig tree grafted and it would always die or reject it. Now i have 5 dif grafts on my fig tree and EVERY SINGLE ONE WORKED! Im not a pro. But I sure feel like one with this thing!!
