 Double Geek Universal Tool
Author: Barry Vincent

I recently noticed (via a friend) the existence of a peculiar tool thats not a reed knife but is. It's the DoubleGeek Universal Tool which is being offered as an alternative to the traditional reed knife. I've found four Utube videos demonstrating the use of this tool on Oboe reeds. My conclusion after watching these videos is that this tool has potential for being used as a 'finishing off' tool but not very practical for scraping an Oboe reed in the initial stages of shaping. I'd like to hear what the consensus is amongst my fellow OboeBB members as to how practical and usful this tool is. As for me I rather enjoy using a traditional cane knife. I also find it relaxing as I whittle away the cane in the early stages of Oboe reed making. And I also find it enjoyable to use a traditional knife in the finishing stages as well. So the question is , for me anyway. Is it worth the expense of getting the DoubleGeek Universal Tool just for finishing off reeds.
You can watch the four videos on my FaceBook (Barry John Vincent)
