Having your hive tool in the pocket of your bee suit is convenient. But, have you ever found that it can snag when you draw it out, particularly when it gets a bit of honey or wax on it?I found a local leather worker who uses Australian leather. I had a hive tool holder made recently and I love it. When I don’t want my hive tool in my hand I simply SLAP it onto the leather pad. The magnets are very strong and the hive tool is there for me when I need it. Keep the leather treated with a good leather treatment (containing bees’ wax of course) and it will age beautifully.
The hive tool and belt are not included.
