Possibly the handiest hive tool of them all, and our personal favorite. Hand forged by our blacksmith in Portland, Oregon, this is a tool suitable for handing down to your next generation of beekeepers. The sharpened hook end easily slides down hive sides and cuts propolized frames and combs free for easy lifting. The sloped, sharpened flat end is great for scraping and prying.

Chisel: 1½" x 1¼"

Hive tool is brilliant

I don’t know how I lost the first one after several years of being indispensable, it evaporated. This one was delivered in three days! Fits my hands, nice edge to quickly scrape burr comb before the girls get too upset, wiggles deftly between stuck frames. It’s brilliant.

Great Awesome Beautiful

This thing is so great, it is so beautiful. The design is so pretty, I love the fact that is was hand forged from steel. I will say that i wish it was a bit more narrow on the ends so that you can get in between boxes without making dents, but otherwise this thing is awesome!!!!!
