 Gouge and opening.
Author: RobinDesHautbois

I only have one gouger blade (old machine, can't get more) so I'd like to read people's experience before I change the shape of the blade.

Comparing cane I shaped myself with "comparison cane" gouged+shaped by Roseau Chantant, I noticed that mine tends to give more open reeds. My cane is generally thinner on the sides than his, which is already "European" - supposedly thinner on the sides than standard American.

Did anyone ever play much with center vs. edge thickness?

Thanks
