True, which makes it funny. Until a beginning grafter finally learns not to 
draw the knife towards any part of ones body, especially the thumb, place a 
band aid on the thumb before starting to work. Prevents minor cuts. 

On large scion material, draw the scion through the knife, not the knife 
through the scion. Takes practice. 

Also carry band aids in the grafting tool box.
