The Organic Tool Company Budding & Grafting Knife boasts a 440A Japanese stainless steel main blade, brass bark lifting blade, and a slip-resistant blue plastic handle that’s easy to find if dropped. Grafting knives are different than other knives, they have a thin and razor sharp beveled on one side. This allows the grafting knife to cut through woody material with ease that other knives could not do. This provides the most contact for your graft. For someone who plans to do a lot of grafting/propagation work a grafting knife is your best bet!
