The ReedGeek “Universal“ Tool is ready to use, requires no sharpening, is safe for air travel, and is manufactured 100% in the USA. All edges can be used to flatten reed tables, or used as traditional knives to adjust and balance reeds. The tip of the ReedGeek® features a gentle proprietary radius that can be used for precision scraping, including balancing the tip, adjusting the heart, or making other fine reed adjustments. The radius allows single-point contact for scraping very precise areas of the reed. On each side of the radius, there are contoured blades designed specifically to adjust or modify the rails of the reed.
