Uncapping Steam Knife. This is a lightweight 10” long steam knife for uncapping honeycomb.

Pierce Beekeeping recommend using a 1500W steamer. Most beekeepers use a wallpaper steamer as a steam source for the knife, whereas some beekeepers use an old pressure cooker to boil water on a gas burner.

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.


This steam uncapping knife comes with a 2-year warranty provided by Pierce Beekeeping. This warranty from the manufacturer requires registration upon purchase. It is a strong reassurance that beekeepers are getting a quality product from a company that is ready to stand behind what they make and release to the market.


Steam hoses and hose connection hardware are not included.
