Blade 1: especially honed for pre-scraping reeds, developed by oboists
Blade 2: extra fine for reed-finishing Each blade is thick, but beveled to a fine edge. The blades are used for scraping the reeds found in woodwind instruments. One blade is used for general work while the other is designed for finer work near the tips of a reed. Available in Left or Right handed versions. The Left handed version simply bevels the blades in the opposite direction, making it easier for left handed use. This knife is distributed exclusively through Oboes.ch, and while it belongs to the 120mm Wenger Series it is unlike any other in the series due to it's specialized purpose, it's non-locking, and uses special steel.

The Swiss-knife Star oboe was developed in collaboration with oboes.ch Wenger, Switzerland, and Klötzli, Bern. The knife is exclusive to "Oboes.ch" which makes it available through resellers. The company Oboes.ch was founded in 1990 by Renato Bizzotto, oboist with many years of orchestral experience (Zurich Symphony Orchestra, Aargau Symphony Orchestra, Shanghai Radio Orchestra, Beijing Symphony Orchestra, Zurich Opera Orchestra etc.).
