The Quality Speed King Uncapping Knife contains a sealed thermostat in the blade and is ready-to-use right out of the box. It is pre-calibrated to just the right temperature for uncapping. Made of food-grade 304 stainless steel, this knife is 10” long and 2” wide, and features a comfortable turned wood handle that stays cool to the touch. It comes with an 8 foot grounded cord.
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.
