Saynor knife

Recommended Posts

I have two saynor knives that have single folding blades about two and a half inches long. One has Saynor written on the blade and Saynor sheffield England at the base of the blade. The other has only Saynor Sheffield England at the base of the blade. The outside is made of ivory which extends to a a flat rounded blade. My question is: What is this for? Sorry no picture as this is the extent of computer literacy.

Thanks Al

Hi Al. Welcome to the site. Does your knife look like the one in post no 5 in the link below?

If so, it is a budding knife. The flat end of the handle is used for prying open the slot in the host plant (made with the blade) for the insertion of the graft. Used with roses, vines etc....
