Professional Grafting Tools Our Italian made Professional Italian Grafting Tools are designed to cut both the scion (the shoot or bud to be grafted) and the rootstock, the main plant onto which the graft will be made (usually chosen for its strong roots). Proper alignment of the two parts is essential to the viability of the graft – it allows a structural union that does not impede the essential transfer of nutrients to form as the graft heals.
