Hi all!
I use beeswax and a tool (kiska, used in Russian egg wax/dying) to add small amounts to the tip of the reed (for flattening), or base (for sharpening) of the reeds. You have to be careful you don’t get wax in the the gap, or that you accidentally wipe it off when drying the reeds.
I never have to worry about scraping too much off.
If anyone is interested, I can get a source for the tool and black wax (easier to see).
