Grafting knives have either a fixed or folding blade that is beveled on one side and flat on the other to provide a smooth, clean cut.

Therefore, there are right and left handed knives. Budding knives have a rounded tip and a blunt quill used to open the bark flap during T-budding.

Both types of knives should be sharpened regularly to insure sharp cuts.
