Fire is inarguably one of the most important tools ever known to mankind. Not only is it a discovery that helped pull us out of the stone age, but it’s been a consistent and indispensable part of our species’ entire history and technological development. That being said, you shouldn’t have to rub two sticks together in order to make fire every time you need it. Instead, pick up the Bernzomatic Torch Kit and you can have fire at your fingertips.
Handheld propane torches are hardly a new invention. But this one is special. For starters, the handle is specifically designed to be more ergonomic than others that came before. Secondly, it operates with a trigger-start ignition – kind of like a push-button grill, but in the palm of your hand. It also offers a flame control valve, operated by a circular dial, which allows you to change the size of the flame and also extinguish it when you’re done. Whether you need to do some soldering, start some fires, or give a good char to the outside of your steak, this $30 torch kit will get the job done.
