An interesting grafting tool...(?)

Dunno if appropriate to share marketing stuff, particularly as I cannot vouch for this product, but saw an ad and thought this looked intriguing.

I wonder how well it might work for roses. (I realize *most* grafts provide a branching base, and not a single stem, so might not be appropriate to e.g. HT roses, but maybe for standards, etc.?)

Anybody have any thoughts? I would be more inclined to spend my money on a new plant or two personally since I don't really do any splice/whip grafting.

First thing that comes to mind is it sure looks like a beginner could make easy quick work using it. Especially creating multiple variety standards l see in stores or up here, or more specifically multiple variety espalier apples for a walled garden. However l muse Harry James Dodson would not be amused in his Victorian garden if an apprentice showed up with it.

This does look like a useful tool for beginners, but I wonder how easy it is to sterilize the cutters.

RRD seems to be spreading, in some cases, because folks tending public gardens aren't sterilizing their pruners. I saw one garden where RRD was rampant, but some of the roses growing around the fence line (those that weren't cut back much) remained clean.
