This high-quality steel knife is completely flat on one side of the blade, with an angled surface on the other side. Preferred by bassoonists, and used by oboists for scraping the bark off. For personalizing this knife, choose your own handle size! We offer small, medium or large wooden handles.

This uses the same blade as our regular beveled knife, with the option of a beautiful ebony handle.

Contoured Knife
This high-quality steel knife is similar to the beveled knife, but the back of the blade has a slight contour to it rather than being completely flat. The serves to reduce the amount of metal that must be removed when the blade is sharpened. Many bassoon players prefer this style of knife. For personalizing this knife, choose your own handle size! We offer small, medium or large wooden handles.
