Completely baffled at the review before mine, some people just never learned basic shapes and how things fit together. This is a gorgeous torch, well engineered, love the air inlet control ring in addition to the fuel control ring, and the outer locking mechanism is a godsend for anyone that uses torches for baking in the kitchen on a regular basis. Your thumbs will thank you for it! The flame runs smooth and blue and can burn from the tiniest little pocket lighter flame all the way up to a blistering 8 inch cone of hellfire. The body of the torch is wrapped in beautifully machine copper that holds its luster well with use, and even without any fuel in the canister there’s a pretty decent amount of weight on it to keep your investment upright and planted well on your working surface and far away from accidental drops, dings, or other mishaps. This is definitely a kitchen tool I plan on keeping nicely kept and around for a long time for many more uses to come. Very satisfied with this purchase.
