No more scraping the top bar of a frame you’re uncapping with a hive tool then switching back to a fork to reach the corners. This all in one tool has a unique built-in scraper on the side meant for top bars so you can quickly scrape all the hard to reach areas of your frames.
Cut from stainless steel, the tines are solid, refusing to break off, and offer a more thorough job than a uncapping knife.
- If you use an uncapping fork as your sole tool for uncapping, by scratching all cappings open but not removing the cappings, the honey will be released during extraction, but you will have much less cappings to deal with later.
- A solid, soft, washable rubber handle is molded with the body of the fork, for superior grip and comfort.
- Aside from scratching or lifting off wax, we have found another valuable use for uncapping forks - checking drone brood for Varroa destructor mites. Simply move the fork parallel to the comb and you can easily lift out the white drone larvae and see the mites.
