Just the right size and shape for a top bar hive tool - it does a great job of handling the tasks you need to accomplish in your Gold Star top bar hive. This top bar hive tool may have been a carving knife in another life - but it does a great job of doing the things that need doing in your top bar hive:
- It can be slipped between the top bars to help separate them as you inspect your hive.
- It's long and thin, quite rigid and very sharp.
- The handle makes a great fulcrum - so it's perfect for the windshield wiper technique that safely detaches any comb the bees may have stuck to the side of the hive. Be sure to always cut up from the bottom!
- Works great for everything a top bar hive beekeeper needs
