Electric uncapping knives will help any beekeeper to speed up their honey extraction. We supply some of the best uncapping knives on the market, and several of our staff have been using Pierce uncapping knives for years. 


The Original and the Best

The Pierce Speed King is the industry standard electric uncapping knife, handmade in Southern California. Paul Pierce invented and patented the heated uncapping knife in 1941. The Pierce Beekeeping Equipment company has been hand-making quality knives ever since.

This is a very popular product at HBS, for good reason. The food-grade steel blade and turned wood handle make it a pleasure to use. With proper care this knife should last for years.
