Ways to Graft- Technique

I figured this would be an excellent place to obtain information on how you all make your cuts on scions. I graft mainly avocados....but I am thinking that my method is really a left-handed (backwards) method. I was always taught to cut with a knife away from my body. Is this wrong? As I consider a grafting knife purchase....I am thinking the standard flat edge on the blade...may be on the wrong side for me. What is correct???

RE: Ways to Graft- Technique

Fireduck,

I'd check out the Tropical Fruits Forum or possibly even the Fruit and Orchards Forum for advice on grafting avocados. Also, I know there are some good videos on YouTube about this.

Some grafting techniques are usually accomplished by cutting towards one's body. For safety, BE CAREFUL. Anything you do with a knife could potentially be dangerous, but with a little common sense, you should be OK.
