An electric uncapping knife makes honey harvesting an easy task. Simply plug it in, press the on/off button, and let it warm up. The heated knife slices through cappings like butter while the built in thermostat prevents the knife from scorching your honey harvest. The offset handle makes it easy to manipulate the knife along the edges of a frame. You will still need an uncapping fork for those cells that were not drawn out far enough for the blades to reach.
*Pro Tip – Try going from the bottom up and use a slight see saw, back and forth motion. Take extra caution if this is newly drawn wax on either wax or plastic foundation. We have tried to speed things up before and pulled all of the wax right off of the foundation (on both types). Yikes, we were a little sad but we learned, hopefully preventing you from doing the same.
