    Default KEnt Williams Hive Tool

    I recently bought a Kent Williams Hive Tool from WT Kelley: https://kelleybees.com/Products/Deta...3334&grouped=1

    I have always wanted to get a hive tool with a hook but otherwise like a traditional hive tool. I used the KW hive tool this morning and really liked it. Especially with frames that have overwintered in the hive and are thick with propolis were easy to get out. It is very well made and has a nice heft to it.

    I'll be ordering an extra one or two in the near future.

    Hey, it was only $17.00!

    Yeah, I'm usually pretty cheap. I'm not sure why I 'splurged' on this. But, I'm glad I did. Like I said I will be getting a spare someday. I seem to be getting a little more forgetful as I mature.

    I always use a hooked hive tool for lifting frames - currently an "Italian" one, but then I have to get the regular one for any aggressive cleaning or easier repositioning of all the frames in a box. I need to try one of these out.

    I bought 2 from WK, they work great. Best tool I ever used. I did have to dull the edge on the blades a bit. Too sharp.

    I guess is cheaper than duct taping an Italian tool to a standard hive tool!!

    Actually not a bad idea for someone that has a few of each laying around!

    I haven't lost a hive tool yet. I have left them sitting on a hive in an out yard though!

    Every time I lose mine, the lawn mower does a fine job of finding it!
