  • Stainless steel American style hivetool


    Hive World’s American style Stainless Steel Hive Tool is a good rugged tool that will take you anywhere you need to go in the hive.  A nice shape to work the supers apart when they have been propolised together with a smooth curve to push against as a lever and sharp blade to do the trick at the opening edge.

  • Stainless Steel Smoker


    Hive World’s Stainless Steel Smoker is your go-to tool to help keep things on an even keel in the apiary.  Its calming influence will be a valuable confidence builder as you  work around your hives.  Made with a wraparound guard to prevent accidental burns and corium leather bellows, this sturdy model will give you good service.
