As a torch, this is just a fine product. Like the control dial on top, like the security pin to prevent accidental lighting. Having said that, there's a few details that I would love to see improved, causing me to drop a star on the rating:

- As said in other reviews: the gas level window is absolutely useless. Even holding it up to a lamp, you can't see a fluid level at all. Of course, it doesn't really affect the usability, but having a window that is useless seems to be a design fail.
- Speaking of design: I love the curve on the rear side of the grip but really miss a little curve on the front for my index finger: holding the torch it a slight bit awkward at first.
- I wish that using the switch to stop the gas flow would be easier to do one-handed.

All in all: would definately buy again, would definately buy an improved version as well!

We have only used this a couple of times but it has worked as designed. We struggled at first filling it up until we realize it had fuel in it. Nice product.

Plenty of heat and works great. But...why would you make fuel windows that's IMPOSSIBLE to see? The "gray" windows (both sides) that's supposedly to let you know if your fuel level is low are useless due to low opacity. This 100% defeats it's designed purpose. Funny.

08-14-2013: After only a few occasional use since I bought it, the ignition mechanism stopped working completely. I'd try to fire multiple times and the little "spark" just won't start. This will be my first and last product bought from this company. This torch was not cheap! Going back to Blazer.

Works great for heating up your Ti nail! Slightly smaller than the vector torches but just as powerful!

Only drawback is that it runs out kinda fast on full blast but not to fast or anything.

And for the safety, just pull it out and dab a little super glue in there, you'll be good to go!

Oh and the people in the other reviews my need to get their eyes checked because the fuel gauge works just fine! Its not crystal clear or anything, but you can tell the fuel level easily if you look closely.

My favorite little torch!

Had this for almost a year.
This is my favorite torch ever!

+ Safety lock [no leaking in my bag]
+ Gas release is far away from the plastic [less worries about overheating the torch]
+ Durable [wont be breaking anytime soon]
+ Adjustable gas release rate [wanna light your cigar? or incinerate it?]
+ Holds quite a bit of gas

I have no complaints on this [surprisingly, since I always complain]

This is a really nice tool. I wish it shut off a tad easier but it is ok after you use it a few times. I can see the fuel level just fine in a decent light. Lights, gets very hot if you want it to. Easily melts solder. It is adjustable and comes in a case. I have used it just a few times but been very happy with the performance each time. It has the feel of a tool that I will be happy to have and use for a long time. IIRC it is made in Ireland. It is not made in China.

Does not come with fuel...maybe this would be obvious to some people, but if an item ships without something it needs to work, it should say so in the description. Also the box doesn't say you need to get fuel which is just helpful to people to know ahead of time. Most companies ship items with batteries, etc. now and this could certainly be shipped with fuel. Expect a little more from a good brand such as this.

Wow this would be a great torch, except for how you have to ignite and cut off the flame is dangerous and plain dumb . Sorry to be harsh but buy something else then this one.
