Never heard of this method but it seems almost as easy as the splice I use.
I've seen it, needs same size wood as whip and tongue which I have done, easier or safer on your fingers.
Guess it depends on what your'e used to.
Here is a link that might be useful: whip & tongue graft
That was a very sloppy whip and tongue in Konrad's link. I like W&T but do need more practice on where to place the tongue. I'll have to try the saddle graft.
I actually don't see the need for anything more elaberate than a splice, With same sized wood it works like a charm and with different sized it works well enough if you line up the cambium on one side.
I know that Konrad has mastered his own technique to the point of great speed but absolute beginners get quick success with a splice- especially with the right pruning sheers. I use a double bladed Italian model from amleo.com. No cut fingers and 5 minutes per graft.
Hman, are you saying you make the cuts to each piece with shears rather than a knife? Seems unusual, but if it works, would be easier. How long are you making your cuts? Long cuts are not so easy with shears.
