classes.This torch is a perfect upgrade if you have been doing metalwork for a while and are ready for a fancier tool. If you are new to metalworking and like to buy the best at the beginning, you won't be disappointed. This is not a "creme brulee" kitchen torch. It is a professional quality jeweler's tool.
This is the torch of choice for our metalsmithing instructor, Kate Richbourg. She is still using the very same torch that she purchased over 10 years ago. It still works as great as the day that she bought it!
