Antonini Bill Hook Knife

.We use this Antonini Bill Hook Knife to make the cleft in our grafting process (#2 above). The large handle provides a solid grip in making the cleft. The blade depth helps in determining how deep to make the cleft providing a snug fit. The bill hook is also useful in making pruning cuts.

The 70mm blade is made from oil-hardened high carbon steel to maintain a durable sharp edge. It is beveled on both sides.

Buddy Tape Image
Buddy Tape

Buddy Tape is perforated, stretchable, biodegradeable, and holds firmly in place. The wax in the film keeps it waterproof, so the bud or graft will not dehydrate. Air can pass through the permeable tape allowing covered buds to breathe.

Each 25mm x 60m (1" x 196') roll has 850 perforations spaced at 70 mm each. Most grafts only need one piece of tape so it is economical to use in comparison to grafting compounds. It is designed to be stretch up to double its length as it is applied to the cut surfaces in a graft and seal it. When stretched, it is self sealing. On larger diameter grafts, we recommend using our rubber strip to more tightly secure the graft after applying the Buddy Tape. When budding, the Buddy Tape applies enough pressure. Covered buds will burst right through the tape. Learn more...

Choose from one single roll, or a package of 6 rolls.
