Our ultimate top bar hive tool is hand-forged in Portland, Oregon from 1/4" steel and is engraved with the Bee Thinking logo.
Our ultimate hive tool works well for all hive types. It is perfect for detaching comb from hive sides, cutting and scraping propolis, and prying frames. Whether you're using a horizontal top bar hive, a Warre hive, or a foundationless Langstroth, this is the only hive tool you'll need to carry!
"The premium, hand-forged hive tool, to be passed down from one beekeeping generation to the next. For use with any hive type." - Cameron, Sales and Customer Service Manager
Our tool is based on the "Bill Wood Comb Knife", but has the added benefit of incorporating a traditional hive tool on one end. Having fallen in love with the original comb knife, but tired of carrying around a traditional hive tool for situations where prying is needed, we decided to combine the two!
Length: 12 3/4"
Chisel: 1 1/2" x 1 1/4"
Curved Blade: 1 3/8" x 5/8"
The Ultimate Hive Tool is a winner. I like the length so I can reach clear across the hive to break the propolis and comb on the top bars.
Elegant, sturdy and practical tool.
Looks like great stuff. I missed this season so haven't used anything yet. Oh well, maybe next year. Thanks for the good pricing and great customer service.
