    I posted this before, so bear with me if y’all already know it...

    A chisel grind is for use with live plants. Not exclusively, of course, because they are also the grind to use for precision cuts along a straight edge or other guide. But in the case of the Florist, sheepfoot or hawkbill, it’s safe to say it’s to protect the plant. The flat edge ~ opposite the chisel ground edge ~ goes toward the plant, and the ground side toward the part being cut off. The flat edge slices cleanly with no microscopic crushing, which is especially important in grafting.
    I’m not a grafter, but I always use one of my Vic pruners on any vegt plants at the farm. (Also important to sanitize ~ I use alcohol on a rag~ between plants for plant health.
    Chisel grinds are easy to sharpen.

    IMHO for factory production knives, Boker did a really nice job on these.

    It was originally white smooth bone, but my hands were stained with leather dye and it leached off.
