The principle of the guillotine guarantees perfect
cuts. With the mm scale you
can select the length of
the reed between 10 and
80 mm. Scraped and unscraped reeds can be cut
to any length desired. The
adjustable length stop can
be preset if you are always
using the same lengths. If ever needed, the
hardened steel cutting unit
can be resharpened.
Even hairthin cuts can be done with precision thanks to the windows, which enable you to view the cutting spot from multiple angles.
The self-arresting reed holder is for oboe and english horn reeds.
