IMHO, the reed geek is a fantastic extension of the basic razor blade concept. It just works great for: flattening the table, balancing the rails, removing swollen areas due to flaws in the cane, removing material at the cut (i.e. the beginning of the vamp) after clipping the tip. These are all things you can do with a razor blade; the Reedgeek just does them better.
