I am going to order it for sure, he sounds great. Just wanted to share. Thank you for postingThis is my friends product and he is really excited about it.
He says it works great and it's very inexpensive.
I hope you get to try it.
Agreed, anyone sharing something that works for them is what it's all about. Thank you for posting.I'm a fan of anyone who comes up with handy tools to make reed work better or easier. Looks like a similar usage to the reedgeek but smaller/handier maybe?
True, you are correct on all your points. I like the fact that it is wide and flat and think it's worth trying out.It's a scraper!
Once that edge wears you'll need to re-burnish it. I bet not one in a thousand sax players knows how to burnish a scraper edge. A pocket knife, on the other hand, is easily resharpened with a whetstone. We all learned how to do that in Scouts.
The dead straight cutting (scraping, really) edge has the advantage of being straight, but the disadvantage of it being hard to remove material from a very small defined area.
I would suggest that if using a pocket knife to adjust reeds poses you a serious danger of cutting yourself, you need not to be handling sharp objects at all. If you've got the dexterity to play saxophone you've got the dexterity to handle a pocket knife without cutting yourself.
I wish them well, but fail to see the advantages.
Ving,I ordered mine today! I watched Paul Haar's review and sold me on it. I think I will likely be able to do most things I do with the reedgeek with this, perhaps more. I ordered the additional key chain holder, as Paul mentions he as well as I easily misplace or forget the reedgeek and having something that easily attaches to a key ring or case strap is quite handy. Although a moot point right now, since I'm only playing at home!
