Topic: speedy sharp
Has anyone used a "Speedy Sharp" on their reed knives?
I am trying to learn how to make oboe reeds; in the meantime (which may be a long time) I have been getting reeds from various makers online when I found this:
My first thought was "And here I just bought the Landwell book and a whole bunch of sharpening stones!" (I do like buying all of the paraphenalia around oboe playing; sort of like a pot head and their stuff)
But then I couldn't seem to find much information on the "Speedy Sharp" knife sharpener. Sure looks convenient. And, um, "Speedy"
I don't have super expensive knives and don't have much time now or in the next several years to devote to reed making so I don't think wearing out the knives will be a big factor for me but I don't want to ruin them right out of the box either.
