While most nursery production is via conventional chip budding, grafting has always been a tool in the nurseryman’s toolbox. With the development of Scionon™ Grafting Tools, the inventor and designer Ian Adams, has made it a goal to allow users to greatly improve their productivity, whether on the “bench” or “in the field”. Most tools help to reduce or eliminate the skilled knife work that can take years to develop. So less skilled people can efficiently perform most of the grafting tasks with a short amount of training and practice. Thousands of Scionon™ tools have been sold worldwide to satisfied users since 2009.
Seeing the need to increase productivity and efficiency, he developed a unique range of grafting tools to assist with scion preparation and assembly.
The hand-held Grafting Shears and bench mountable Graft Crafter (GBU) are unique in that they are capable of cutting ‘whip & tongue’ grafts (and many other graft types) without the use of a knife, enabling unskilled persons to prepare these technically difficult grafts with ease.
The Scionon™ range of grafting tools are a new concept in how grafting can be approached. They are of extremely high and durable quality and are the only grafting tools available that successfully replicate the knife cut, therefore eliminating damage to the cambium layers when grafting.

The tools enable novices as well as experienced propagators to cut and assemble a wide range of grafts over a wide variety of materials. These tools have been developed to cover many grafting and budding applications and are extremely versatile in the operating range and material that can be prepared. They have already been used to graft many fruiting and ornamental varieties and species. The tools are capable of performing the following cuts: whip & tongue, cleft, wedge, and rind grafts and chip & ‘T’ buds. They operate in the 1/8” to 1” (3mm to 25mm) scion wood diameter range depending on the product supplied.
Scionon™ tools have been most successfully applied to apple, pear and pome fruits but can also be used on summer stone fruits (apricot, plum, prune, cherry, peach, nectarine, and almond), cane/vine (kiwifruit and grape), exotics (olive and avocado) and ornamentals (acer, ash, elm, gleditsia, robinia, walnut and flowering cherry). They can be used to field or bench graft. The Drop Saw tools have been quite successfully used in grafting large diameter woods and extremely hard woods like pecans and other nuts.
