The rosewood handle grafting knife have two different 2.5" blades:
1. The hawk-bill blade is completely flat on the left and beveled on the right.
2. The straight blade is completely flat on the right and beveled on the left.
The hawk-bill is for making cuts away from yourself, minimizing the risk of injury while giving perfectly flat cuts on scion. The straight blade is for downward motion cuts on the rootstock for side veneer and cleft grafts.
The blades are made up of 5CR steel used for high quality tactical and hunting knives. This is very hard steel according to Wikipedia on the Rockwell C scale (HRC). The HRC is a hardness scale used to gauge resistance to indentation. According to Wikipedia, the hardness rating on 5CR steel is between 55-57 HRC. This means knife will keep its edge longer than the other low grade steel due to the higher content of carbon in the material.
This blade is capable of cutting very dense wood such as longan and jaboticaba.
Sharpening the Curved Blade:
Same as the straight blade in terms of the angle. The difference is a round edge stone is used so it can contact the blade’s edge properly. A cylindrical ceramic rod would be ideal. Lean the base of the cutting edge on the rod at a 15 degree angle and slide the blade away from the rod. Allow the blade’s natural curve guide the sharpening motion. Repeat until sharp. The edge of a wet stone does the same job. Lean the base of the cutting edge of the blade on the edge of the wet stone at a 15 degree angle and slide the blade away from the stone.
