I'm actually struggling with this too. Today, i sort of hit rock bottom, i am unable to get the last few reeds i purchased to play. Usually i can sharpen my knife reasonably well, its a single bevel knife, but recently i also bought a double hollow ground knife and i may have upset my sharpening skills by swithching back and forth. i think i can overcome this with a ittle practice, but its not helping me get some reeds running. Actually, the last dozen or so reeds i have purchased from several different makers have all been miserable. I am more than willing to take the blame but i really need a few reeds that play, i have orchestra rehearsals starting in a couple weeks. I did discover today that i had a severe adjustment issue with the oboe and have made an attempt to adjust it. That may have solved some of my issues.

So, i feel your pain! Make sure your oboe is ok. I actually overhaul flutes for fun, but oboe adjustments are very complex. If you can, take it to an oboe technician to make sure its not contributing to your problem. Then, maybe meet with a teacher who is willing to help you adjust the reeds.
