This unheated uncapping knife is made in the USA from quality stainless steel and is of commercial quality unlike some of the cheap ones you see on the market. Made of food-grade 304 stainless steel, this knife is 25cm long and 5cm wide, and features a comfortable turned wood handle.
Made in USA.
Paul Pierce (the founder of Pierce Beekeeping Equipment Company) invented and patented the heated uncapping knife in 1941. This tool established the industry standard for heated uncapping knives and is the preferred tool used by professional and backyard beekeepers alike. Many companies around the world have tried to copy this knife—but there is nothing like the original Pierce Uncapping Knife. All our uncapping knives are handmade in Southern California, USA.
