Our Uncapping Scratcher has a rubberized grip to help with sticky honey harvesting, an oversized handle for more comfort, and stainless steel, heavy-duty tines for rust-free care. It is dishwasher safe.
It is used when harvesting honey regardless of whether you have one hive or 10,000. The hard-to-replace tool is needed to remove cappings from honey frames before extracting.
The multiple tines pick at cappings to expose the delicious honey underneath each capping, which is essential when extracting honey from frames. Even when using a knife or other uncapping tool, these scratchers are essential for opening the cappings that other tools can't get to.
Capping scratchers can also be used to break open drone cells to disrupt the varroa reproduction life cycle or to inspect growing drones for varroa mites. The strongest and most durable design in a capping scratcher. This is the one that can be used for decades.
