These are Better Photos of my handmade cutout Tools for removing conb in tight places.

I forged these tools from stainless steel rods.
let Me know what you think about them
john


this is all three.each has a specific task.

This is the hook knife for removing overhead and wall attached comb.



This is the pointed 90 degree knife to cut thru comb overhead or wall.


This is the ofset flat knife for cutting comb in joist areas when comming from the side.

You can see the slight offset of the blade to scape the comb off roofs or underlayment.

Thanks
John

Are you sure you didn't get mad at your golf putters one day?    Good looking tools there.   Lets see them in action.   I bet you can reach in tight places with those.

No not at my golf putters. But the gas powered trimmer that died now lives again. cool

Made from the solid steel shaft inside the tube. That will teach my other trimmers to start when I want the to run. whip

Nice!  My DH made me one for our various top bar hives, like the center one but not angled.  Handy skill to have, being able to make your own tools  grin

John, put me down for a set.
How long are they? Currently my italian hive to is my long reach tool.

The hook is15 1/2 inches long
The pointed one is 16 1/2 inches long.
The Flat blade one is 23 inches long.

I can make them as long as 5 1/2 feet long or as short as you want them. Just let me know and I will try and round up the meterials as quickly as possible.

I buy a 3 foot piece of steel rod from a big box store, cut it half, heat the end with a propane torch, bend 1-1/2" over to form the blade, beat it flat with a three lb. hammer, sharpen it with a grinder and a file and stick a handle on it.
I made one that has the blade on a 45 to the shaft so I can cut comb off walls or ceilings with the same knife and I do not have to hold the tool at a 90 to the surface the comb is on.
The next ones I make will have rectangular handles so I can tell where the blade is by the feel of the handle instead of trying to see into the back of a dark hole.
I paint all my cut out and yard tools bright yellow, makes them easy to spot in the grass.
