To shape a stick of scionwood for grafting, you need a knife that is beveled on only one face so the cut is as flat as possible. We offer “right-handed” and “left-handed” grafting knives—see below to decide which knife will suit your style of grafting. A (right-handed): 2¼" stainless steel blade; 3½" alloy-lined nylon handle with satin finish; overall length: 6½"; manufactured in Switzerland. B (left-handed): 2¼" carbon steel blade; 4⅛" fiberglass-reinforced nylon handle with satin finish; overall length: 6.7"; manufactured in Italy. Why is B more expensive than A? The righties are manufactured on a much greater scale than lefties. Also, the lefty knife features a precision bark-lifter tab. Appearance of handle may vary from photo; sometimes we have red handles and other times we have black handles.
