Tool has two cutting edges, which are beveled. These blades will make it much easier to clean off burr comb and propolis. The hooked end will lift out frames by creating a wedge - works with ease!
I started out with this hive tool and it remains my favorite. I have worked with others, but the J on the red end is indispensable for prying up frames with the least amount of damage to the comb. When I started another apiary and needed a kit for it, I bought 2 more.
I have several hive tools....this is by far my favorite!
