If you have ever wanted to perform any grafts on your bonsai trees then this is the ideal grafting knife to get started with.

Grafting is used to primarily place branches where there currently aren't any. This is frequently needed on species such as pines which can easily become "leggy." However grafting can also be used if you wish to replace the foliage type of a juniper with a nice trunk, with better foliage.

I often use my grafting knife when I am doing approach grafts on maples also, to enlarge the groove I am making to receive the graft. As these tools are kept extremely sharp the cut they make is clean and is able to heal quickly. This makes them ideal for this sort of work.

Grafting knives can also be used to clean the cut made by a branch cutter, before sealing the cut. This final step of cleanly cutting the live tissue ensures the cut heals quickly and cleanly, with the least risk to the plant for disease to infect the tree through damaged tissue.

This grafting knife, made in Japan by Kaneshin is for right handed people only and is sold in a protective plastic pouch.

    Professional instrument

    Extremely sharp blade, capable of making super thin cuts for grafting. Very useful tool. Recommended for grafting.

    Very good looking yool

    Very good looking tool. Sharp as ****. I thaught it may just be something that stays in my tool box, but already started using it this weekend. Used it to clean and prevent tearing close to the branches on jin's, then followed up with the cut paste

    Works wonderfully - feels like an extension of your fingers that cuts clean and easily through any type of wood.

    This grafting knife has quickly become one of the favourite items in my Bonsai Tool kit. It makes the removal of dead wood, and the cleaning of large cuts so much easier that I wished I had it earlier last year when I did my major pruning after the winter. It has given me enough courage to attempt my first grafting! Thank you! I will happily recommend it to any fellow bonsai enthusiast I may meet.
