This shaper tip handle has been crafted for ease of use, and longevity. The machined aluminum, blue anodized body is durable and feels great in your hand. The redesigned, retractable brass jaws have been thoughtfully upgraded. This new design alleviates the cane dimpling left by older style jaws. This handle fits our oboe, oboe d’Amore, and English horn shaper tips, plus many others.
