How to do grafting: A)After you have selected a good scion(one year old, w/at least 2 sections of joint above) & cut it (wipe grafting tool cutting blade with alcohol) to perfect fit to rootstock (canbium layer must be contacted well), tying with nursery tape or rubber(must be tight joint point).Tip: use a measuring caliper to find close size diameter branch for scion & rootstock. B)apply the enviromental friendly grafting tape over the grafting area, overlap 3 to 4 times, make sure it is tight(air tight: prevent rain/water, bacteria or any other disease from getting into grafting area and keeps the moisture inside the grafting/joint area). Also apply tree seal to cover any new-cut expose area(to prevent infection & keep moisture inside scion/rootstock, very important!!), especially on scion’s tip point, must apply seal to prevent die back effect. C)cover the grafting area with clear plastic bag(spray some filtered water into inner bag area, to keep moisture inside bag, Do not spray water at grafting area). If there is direct sunlight over the grafting area, use brown paper lunch bag to cover it for protection. D)After 3 weeks, if the scion still look pretty greenish, then it is great chance that you will see the new bud coming out from scion in 4 to 8 weeks depends on temperature & weather. Notes: To do the grafting, will require knowledge, skill & patient, some species are easy & some are harder. Always do some study/reaserch on internet before you do it(search for specific plant that you plan to do), any special technic on particular kind of plant that you can learn from expert, plus pay attention on little details will always help & increase your chance to success on the grafting.

Not that well made! ~ reviewed by Janets Review
I liked the idea, but the cut is too shallow making it hard to bind the two branches.
Also the blade had to be changed to one of the others because it would not cut all the way through the branch.

The grafting tool arrived promptly and in excellent condition. I had a very difficult time grafting Jujube since that wood is super hard. May I recommend longer handles which should provide more leverage and make it easier to cut into Jujube. Please let me know if you make that improvement.

Exactly as stated. Easy to use.
It is actually easy to use once you figure it out ~ reviewed by Miguel A. Esquivel
Does what is supposed to do. I have never used one of these before, so I had to look it up on youtube to figure it out. A simple instruction with the tool would be very helpful. It is actually easy to use once you figure it out. Looks like it will last a long time. Well made
Does not work with citrus, doubt it does for other types of fruit. ~ reviewed by Customer
The cutting “blades” are not sharp enough to cut citrus branches. The branches crush, rather than cut, leaving them useless.
Good tool to have for your garden hobby. ~ reviewed by Ratana Kas
Received product fast even if it’s from China. Tried the tool on some branches, love the way it cuts the groves with smooth mating surfaces.
Happy with the purchase.
tried a few cuts it works but not clear how … ~ reviewed by Ken
tried a few cuts it works but not clear how to change the blades. I will figure it out I gave it 5 stars for the quality
Seems to be helpful ~ reviewed by Docmag
I purchased the tool to late in the season to use on this seasons grafts. I have used this devise to make a few practice cuts. The blade will need sharpening but can make tune cuts as they came. If calipers are use to size the areas to be cut the delta blade seems to make a desirable grat cut and is easy to use. I will have to wait until next season to see how the brats take.
