In the work of the bee, the honey stored in the honeycombs is capped and protected with a thin beewax film known as wax cappings. In order to extract the honey from the honeycomb it is necessary to remove the layer of wax capping, and for this we need the tools to uncapping: knife (both smooth and saw), comb (ideal for puncturing the densest honeys) and the cleanest knives and comfortable to use which are the electric ones.

The basic process of extracting the honey from the frames is to use a hot knife to cut off the cappping on each side. Run the knife just under the surface of the wax capping, leaving the rest of the comb intact. Dip the knife in boiling water after each scraping to keep it clear of wax. Put the wax cappings into a container since you can melt these later to make other items.
