Topic: Where to get blade sharpened?

Dear list,

Can anyone recommend a good place to send my Rieger tip profiler blade to get sharpened? 

Thank you.

Hello Jennifer,
You might check with Robert Williams, Principal bassoon Detroit. He may have some blade sharpening fixtures for sale. You remove your blade and place it in this small fixture. Sharpening is accomplished by rolling it back and forth over a sharpening stone or special sand paper, on a flat surface. The process is simple, and you can always do your own sharpening.
If, in the mean time,if you need to get your tip profiler back in service quickly, you might consider sending it to me and I will sharpen it for you so you can see how the process works.

Go to Rieger's website.  He has new blades for sale for approx $90 (?)
