Go to a glass shop and get a 8" by 8" or 12" by 12" piece of thick glass, maybe with a beveled edge for safety.

Get some wet dry sand paper and sand the backside of a reed evenly. You will not qualify as a woodworker, but the reed will be softer.

I just did this on one of my slightly too hard reeds last night, ah it's sweet now.
