    Default Honey Paw Uncapper

    Has anyone tried these http://beekeeping.honeypaw.fi/Slit-uncapping.php ?? Are they available in the US? Do they work well on capped honey in old brood comb? Another link with photos. http://taru.ee/pood/honey-paw-viilkoorija

    I got one. It was a little complicated to get the funds wired to their bank but it arrived a week after I paid for it. It works great. After uncapping 9 supers there is less than 1 shot glass of wax that is removed from the comb. It takes the bees about 1-2 days to rebuild the cells completely.

    It uses steam from a steam generator. I purchased a small one used for bending wood. Here is what I purchased:

    I'm planning to order one when they send me the invoice. Will provide feedback after trying it.
