The hand held SCIONON® Grafting Shears™ are an extremely versatile tool allowing unskilled persons to prepare at least 6 graft types safely and easily. With training and practice this tool enables the novice grafter to prepare the following grafts – rind, whip & tongue, cleft & wedge grafts. It also cuts chip & ‘T’ buds. This tool is a portable hand held device allowing a multitude of applications and can be supplied with an optional holster for field use. The base tool is supplied with full operating instructions, spare blade & fixings. The optional holster attaches to a belt and also has pockets for a knife and sharpening stone and/or spare blade storage.
The new 12mm is an economical entry model with a slim upper jaw allowing closer work on potted material that may be grafted. It replaces the older 13mm shears.
The new 14mm is an economical model suitable for most grafting of fruit trees. It also has a slim upper jaw allowing closer work on potted material that may be grafted. It replaces the older 15mm and 16mm shears.
The new 21mm shears are recommended only where you may have much heavier woods, up to 22mm or 7/8″, and really offer no particular advantage when the wood is in the range for the 14mm shears.
For LEFTIES, 15mm and 22mm Left-Handed Shears are still available.
We sometimes have re-furbished shears available in various sizes at a discount of 10-20% depending on the tool. Please contact us.
