To do the job, you will need a quality knife.
This knife is specially imported from Portugal. Features a very sharp edge, with an offset handle and a center ridge and designed specifically for cutting wax cappings from frames. Ideally suited to harvesting a few hives.
Dipping the blade into hot water between cuts eases the uncapping process.
For even easier uncapping, purchase two knives, uncapping with one while leaving the other hot water. When the first knife cools, just switch.
