It is unlikely that a Butane Torch will be the first tool on your shopping list. But if you need one (emergency plumbing work, metal crafting & repair etc, making creme brulee), you'll be sorry that you don't have one. These are fine tools by a firm that we have known for some time (the Taiwanese are doing world class work). This Pro model stands out for its great fuel capacity and its substantial handle and frame. A fine value. These have to be shipped to you without any Butane, which you will easily find locally.
