A fun birthday present

Here is my favorite birthday present. A tall, steel fire lighter. Very good looking and heavy in your hand. It's 12". A heck of a lot nicer than the gas lighters you buy at Home Depot.

Nice. Those cheapie ones never seem to last! Of course I don't need either these days. I use my propane torch

to start my fires. No kindling. Just choose some fairly thin logs (1" or so), stack them just so, click the ignitor and within a minute, I've got a good blaze to build from. :cool:

Not exactly subtle
 
David,

Good point. But if you are going to light a fire with company watching, which would you use? .... Maybe you shouldn't answer that.

for company, i'd build myself one of these... :p

Oooooooh! I want one of those Robert! I'm pretty sure I could cut my oven heating time to under 20min!! :D

But seriously, with company coming, I'd still use the propane torch. Sure it's not sportin' but in my experience, the fire aspect is 20% important, while the preparation of the final product rates in around 80%. But that is one nifty lighter. Way better than the cheapo one I have and can't stand!

Flame on
 
Unfortunately Kalifornia made it illegal to build a product that emits a flame longer than 10 feet. I am not sure of the actual wording and all. I hear that this sort of thing is ok in New Zealand

Propane torch on Sale
 
I just came from Harbor Freight Tools, and they had a propane torch on sale for $17.99. It comes with a 6.5 foot hose. I just tried it out, and it works much better than the Bernz-O-Matic I was using. It's not quite like Robert's flame thrower, but more than sufficient. ---Mel
