For smith you are seriously limited and I would suggest with respect that a quick Google would answer your q

If you were to ask about Langstroth then it would be a fascinating question involving 40 foot containers and so on.

Since Steele and Brodie went, well... as I say a bit limited.

And oh dear did Mike get it wrong.

I only ever use Thornes seconds, they seem ok to me, and my bees never complain. :)

If you need to ask what is cut comb you need to do some reading.

well, that was the least expected answer from this forum.. Unfortunately or fortunately English is not my native language and i do still meet expressions and words which meanings i need to ask. May I ask how many other languages to you speak PH? I speak three.

You might mean 'may' you ask. We don't doubt your ability. (only 'pulling your leg' :) )

PH speaks Purple Esperanto in moments of stress. :)

I'll answer then since nobody else seems to want to :)

Cut Comb is where you sell a chunk of honey still in the comb - hence it's just cut out. Various suppliers sell special kit to produce this. I'm sure you know exactly what it is though - just a different phrase

I arguably speak three languages though what the point of that question is beats me.

Do not buy fancy kit for cutting cut combs. A cold sharp knife is all that is needed and a piece of plywood made to the shape of the cut comb container and varnished.

The cutters sold by the vendors are a nightmare to use.

Thank you. I indeed had my idea what may it be, but i believe it is always worth asking if not sure. Question raised when i bought some foundation from paynes and i saw "cut comb wax". for sale.Thanks again,

They sell extra thin cut comb wax foundation so that when you eat your honey comb, you get less wax to eat.
