Perfect Uncapping knife for deep Langstroth frames and other frames up to 12″ (30.5 cm) tall.  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.

The Pierce Speed King is the industry standard electric uncapping knife, handmade in the USA. This uncapping knife is a very popular product at HBS; whether you have 1 hive or 100 you'll find it a convenient way to speed up the extraction process. 

  • Comfortable wooden handle

  • 2.4m/8' grounded cord so you have plenty of room to move around while you're uncapping

  • Sealed thermostat in blade, pre-calibrated to the right temperature for uncapping

  • This is the Australia/NZ 220/240 volt model
