Swiss-Star Oboe Knife

Swiss-Star Oboe Knife. Picture by ColoSwiss. The Swiss-Star Oboe Knife Swiss-Star Oboemesser is a specialized Reed Knife designed by Oboes.ch in collaboration with Wenger, and Klötzli of Switzerland. It features two special blades which are not made from the typical Wenger knife steel, but are made of 440-C-special steel, hardened to 59-60HRC. Both blades have been specifically designed and honed for their intended use;

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.
