Product Description

Made in USA. The Orginal Speed King Uncapping Knife, Electric. 110/120 Volts.

North American Model. 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 knifeā€”but there is nothing like the original Pierce Uncapping Knife. All our uncapping knives are handmade in Southern California, USA.


The Speed King contains a sealed thermostat in the blade and is ready-to-use right out of the box. It is pre-calibrated to just the right temperature for uncapping. Made of food-grade 304 stainless steel, this knife is 10” long and 2” wide, and features a comfortable turned wood handle that stays cool to the touch. It comes with an 8 foot grounded cord.

Review Submitted By: Cody O

I was handed down a Vintage Pierce Speed King knife that easily had been used since mid 1980's. It still worked flawlessly up until this year when it finally died. For a short time I tried the alternatives on the market; rollers, square scrappers, forks, and a simple serrated cold knife. Nothing compared to the Speed King quality and ease of use. I figured if they can make a product last 30+ years then I should invest in their products again. I'm a happy owner of a new Speed King model and it works just as amazing as the old one. It gives you such a clean cut with little effort at all! The knife heats up within 30 seconds and ready for use. I will dip mine into the wax cappings in between frames to keep temperature regulated. It's worth mentioning that the customer service is amazing also! I would say half the time I have called them we end up talking bee stuff off the topic I called for! :) Thanks
