Made in Japan
The GB-2001 was among the world's first fully self-contained, self-igniting hand held butane refillable torches.
Made in Japan since 1985, the GB-2001 was the vanguard for a new category of hand tools.
The Blazer Products GB-2001 refills with Blazer Brand Butane as well as other quality brands. (sold separately).
- Piezo Instant Ignition
- Wind Resistant
- Butane Refillable
- Detachable Base
- Secure Grip
- Choice of Flame Types
Precision Flame Control
The flame strength and type can be controlled by the air flow dial located on the stem of the torch nozzle. This will allow a choice of torch flames.
Note: When first igniting be sure the hole on the air flow dial is aligned with the hole on the torch stem. This will allow proper initial blue torch flame ignition.
2500F Torch Flame
When properly aligned, the air flow dial will allow the GB-2001 to burn at a powerful 2500F butane blue torch flame.
Soft, Cooler Flame
To obtain a softer, cooler flame, after ignition turn the air flow dial located on the torch nozzle stem. This will provide a variable softer flame for when a 2500F flame is not required.
A Secure Comfortable Grip
The textured rubber diamond pattern grip over the gas tank provides a secure, non-slip grip on your torch.

The GB2001, Blazer’s original butane refillable micro torch, is a time-tested, gas torch that creates a precise flame emitting from a nozzle head, allowing direct heat application to an object. It is commonly used for detailed purposes such as brazing, plumbing, soldering, jewelry making, culinary, automotive and dental and lab applications.
The GB2001 has a rubber, diamond-shaped, outer body finish, for safe grip and ease of use. It features a gas flow adjustment lever to allow for ease of flame heat and precision change. Its torch flame is adjustable from yellow to more precise and hot blue flame. The torch comes with an attachable, tabletop stand for hands-free work. It offers a long burn time, compared to some other Blazer micro torch products.
The torch houses a piezoelectric ignition system, which is based on a pressurized molecular reaction, and requires no electric connection. Piezoelectric energy occurs when the trigger is activated, releasing a small, spring-loaded internal hammer that strikes a crystal, producing a spark and resulting in gas flame ignition.
With a maximum flame temperature of 2,500 degrees F, the GB2001 has a continuous burn time of approximately 1.5 to 2.0 hours, at maximum fuel volume, and has a 26-gram gas capacity. The torch head has a 90-degree fixed angle, and its flame range is 0.5 to 1.25 inches. It has a safety component that offers manual lock of the ignition, when not in use. It measures 6.0 (l) x 3.0 (w) x 2.5 (d) inches, weighs 6.8 ounces and has a black body finish. This product is intended strictly for use in professional and industrial environments. In accordance with federal regulations, home use of this product is prohibited.
Since 1985, Blazer Products has created an array of professional and industrial tools and equipment. Located in Farmingdale, NY, the company manufactures a variety of micro torches and ultrasonic cleaners. Blazer Products is known worldwide for its original micro torch products.
The GB2001 torch operates with a standard butane canister (sold separately).Recommended to be used with triple refined or higher grade of butane gas.

I don't really know how to word this because I feel like being straightforward will make me sound overly negative. The quality is just... fine. However I mean that in the literal sense of the word. Everything I've seen so far in fit and function is exactly fine - which is good. We are so used to complete garbage with manufacturing focus on efficiency so extreme that every aspect of a design is built just well enough to just barely avoid malfunctioning. Not even trying to get preachy on this or anything as it is - at the very least - a logical path in economies are we know them. But the downside is nothing is "nice" anymore if you get what I mean. Any regular mass produced product that is made "too well" is considered a literal mistake and will be revised.
So when I see people harp on the build quality of a brand of an otherwise simple device (mechanically speaking), then I see the much higher price and actually get excited. I think things like , "Huh, maybe it IS super nice! And at that price they could afford to overbuild it so this is believable"
And there was my problem, "overbuild". I was expecting that was nice for the sake of being nice. Ridiculously overspec manufacturing because it could be done simply enough.
It isn't any of that. It is just built perfectly fine. If I made this I could happily sell it knowing there were no unnecessary manufacturing corners cut and that its a quality product designed to last a long time with reasonable use. I am happy products like this still exist (for the retail market anyway). That being said I do think there is a healthy margin on these, but even then I realize I hardly even mind anymore. At least its going to a company that still gives a damn about making something good. Not insanely amazing craftsman awesome, not "make the investors happy forever" bad, just good. Nothing wrong with good :).
I had an issue with the base pad being a little too big to actually stay on. The base is pretty important for this. I put some black gaff tape around the body and it fits snug now. That and it being a bit overpriced overall is why I gave this 4 stars.
As for function it works perfectly. You might be able to tell from this long review that somehow references economic theory in mass production that this torch heated up the quartz real nice
One of my creations made with this torch!
This is a dependable, functional and well made tool that, with proper care, lasts a long time. The secret as with all sensitive, precision lighters like torches is to remove the gas in the chamber before refilling the torch. In essence, you are trying to remove the dirt from the leftover butane gas that may eventually clog the nozzle. I should know. I’m not only a collector of all sorts of lighters but in my last life, I used to sell as a side business, this and a few other models on an auction site for over 10 years. In fact, I could say that this lighter partially financed the collage education of my twins sons.
Needless to say, the product is as pictured & described, arrived intact with no issues and more importantly, came New in its original box

Checar todas las características del producto antes de comprarla.
No tuve oportunidad de probarla. Se ve buena y resistente. La pongo en devolución porque en mi ciudad no hay manera de encontrar los repuestos del gas butano que lleva.
Me di cuenta de este problema hasta que llegó y traté de llenarla. Comprarlos todo el tiempo por internet, me parece poco sustentable para el precio/cantidad que se maneja.
Al vendedor le faltan especificar su producto y advertir que solo una marca tiene los recargables.
