I would also love to hear from someone who has some experience with the new ReedGeek scraping tool. I am fascinated by the idea of it but it looks rather impracticable and non-ergonomic to actually use.
The ReedGeek is a useful tool--it allows you to easily remove material 'in the channels'. Mostly it's for the end stages of reed finishing, when you want to take off tiny amounts of material. I also use it for scraping 'windows' in oboe reeds.
The slightly-radiused tip works best for both of these operations. My complaint--and I've expressed this to the guy who makes and sells them--is that there is only one rounded tip on the tool, so when that gets dull, you have to send it back to be re-sharpened. This really is best done by the manufacturer or a machine shop, not hand-held by yourself on a stone.
Simple solution would be to radius or round all (4) tips, but they haven't caught on to that yet. I don't know why--the straight-across, flat tips are useless for scraping in the channels or making windows IMO.
