Hi, I'm planning to try grafting apple tree this year, and I'm looking to buy a good grafting knife. Could anyone recommend one and where to buy it?

Try these people. This knife looks very similar to my own but mine doesn't have a fancy handle. It was a gift, don't know where it was bought.

Yaut - Sadly, this post seems to have dried up on you and the above sight, as you may have discovered, is based up in the Italian Alps, despite its 'UK' web address.

If you haven't yet sourced your knife, try http://www.handyhardware.ie/Default.aspx?List=1&Level=a&tabid=131&CategoryID=899 which has a selection of knives for you to choose from. Any knife is only as good as the piece of steel the blade's made from but I can report good things about Handy Hardware, so offer it as an alternative.

Thanks for your replies! I'll check them out.
I guess it's not much activity in here this time of the year same as out there in the gardens Wink

True. It will warm up soon enough, hot and heavy at times!

Hi, I'm back again.
So when is the time to graft apple trees? I've never done it before. I've read somewhere on internet that April is the right month. I have some grafting stock collected back in January (I hope it's still viable).
