That's a pretty creative comment. :) Actually, we chose copper due to its sustainability and the fact that it looks much nicer than the "average" torch. Most torches on the market are boring and just plain.....well, boring. Not to mention, we also upgraded the valve in this bad boy, allowing the flame to reach out 7.5 inches using the highest setting. Make no mistake, the nozzle will be hot after use as the flame is 2,400 degrees. So, don't go around grabbing the nozzle after each use. The body of the torch will remain cool as a cucumber! Enjoy your new torch!
