    This is a great little tool and pretty much does whatever needs doing around the hive. It’s the only tool I use and recommend it.

    Hi Gary and Margaret,

    I just received my hivetool today and I’m very happy and its a complete one there’s nothing you can ask for a good hive-tool, simply the best. I’m taking this back to the Philippines to use in my own apiaries, for sure my beekeeper friends will envy me. 

    Thank you very much you’re such nice people.

    Best Regards,

    Very happy with this hive tool, has all the components I need when working on our bee hive. The bright colour is good makes it easy to find.

    This is the Mercedes Benz of hive tools, I’ve used a few different styles of tool and this is my favourite by far, the excellent design allows for easy hive opening, manipulation of frames and cleaning off excess comb is a breeze. I recommend this tool to everyone experienced and new beeks alike.

    The orange Kiwi Combo arrived Thursday and is better than I had imagined. It is made of heavier steel than most hive tools and has a comfortable feel to it. As I had envisioned, the hook is slim enough to get in between the frames easily and the bent blade portion is wide enough to give a sturdy base for the pivot and yet room so you can hit it with the palm of your hand. The main blade is very sharp, whereas the the scraper blade could use more sharpening if you are cleaning equipment. However, one might leave it as it is for general beekeeping operations as it sometimes touches ones wrist. I like it and rate it as the best hive tool in my collection. My collection of hive tools consists of over fifty hive tools from all over the world.
