Reed Making Kits
Supplies and Tools
Oboists who are interested in starting reed-making
We recommend purchasing the supplies and tools separately rather than purchasing reed tool kits. This way you can select only the items you need to start making oboe reeds depending on whether you decide to scrape on the reeds or if you prefer to wrap the reeds prior to scraping. It is more cost effective to purchase items individually than collectively, so we offer these items at reasonable, yet competitive prices.
Basically you will need to continue purchasing shaped cane to wrap the reeds after you have all the reed making tools.
You can reuse your reed corks (staples) from old reeds to avoid purchasing new ones. However, it is best to use the same type of staples when beginning making oboe reeds to keep your variables at a minimum.
The more consistent the cane and staple quality = the more consistent your results.
Types of Sharpening Stones
Which one is best for your knife?
For new knives with sharp edges it is best to use a smooth stone, such as a translucent Arkansas stone, soft Arkansas, or ceramic stone.
To turn the burr of a sharp edge we recommend a sharpening steel.
For knives that are dull or uneven at the blade and need regrinding we recommend a more textured stone, such as a diamond stone or Arkansas double grit stones. Diamond stones remove the steel from the knife, so use these sparingly.
