I especially Love the craftsmanship. Its to beautiful to put in a tool box so I leave it out. It works beautifully.
The tool does an excellent job prying top bars apart and cutting through bracing the bees use to brace the comb to the sides. It's very solidly built, and the dimensions are right--long enough to do the job but no longer than it needs to be.
Nice item, Very well constructed.
I bought two ultimate hive tools as gifts and I received favorable remarks on them.
So glad I bought this! The best tool I have ever used! Caveat I am new to the hobby but I've helped others a lot and brought my tool and they have ALL ordered one afterwards!

Western Red Cedar is our premium wood option. It is rot resistant, dimensionally stable, insulates well, and doesn't require painting or sealing.
