A remnant of a time when horticultural grafting was a necessary aspect on the farm as nearly all had at least a small grove of fruit trees for personal use, the grafting knife was a necessary piece of equipment to the practicing craftsman many of whom traveled from farm to orchard practicing their specialized art. As the practice of grafting was a major factor in sustaining productive apple, peach, pear and other fruit trees and as the success of getting grafts to take as they would say, could be an iffy effort taking some time before success could be determined, the grafter was a well-paid craftsman highly respected and much in demand in 18th and 19th century farm communities. This good old grafting knife was, as was the case with many grafters, hand made with an eye toward their personal preferences. This knife was hand forged from a period single-cutmill file, a favorite source that would take the keen edge necessary in accomplishing a successful graft. This knife measures 10 inches in total length with a 5 inch blade mounted through a brass ferrule to a stout turned ash-wood grip. Demonstrating desirable evidence of age, period use and originality, yet remaining untouched and in nice condition, this early grafting knife will go well in any number of period collecting categories. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques! :
