Customer Reviews

Two failures, two torches This is my second of the same model. Neither seems able to hold the fluid in. Every time I go to use it it is empty. Yes, I turn the valve off. When the igniter goes bad there is no easy or cheap way to repair it, despite the fact that the igniter is the same one used in $1 Scripto lighters. 1Great Torch! I have been taking a PMC jewelry class for the past two years, but was always afraid to use a torch to fire my jewelry pieces, that is until my instructor did a demo with her Blazer Micro Torch. I tried it and liked the self-igniting feature and the fact that you did not have to keep pressure on the trigger to keep it running. She suggested that I check on Amazon.com as she had gotten her torch from Amazon. I did and found it to be less expensive and got free shipping also. What a great deal. I have been using it for about one month, and I love it. I have just finished a necklace of fused pure silver links and my Blazer did all the work. I would highly recommend it to my friends. 5Broke after 3 years of very heavy use.. From the picture you would think this would be a 1 Star review but I ve had this torch for over 3 years and have been using it daily for dabbing.. hands down the best most durable butane torch that I ve used. Just ordered another as this one just broke because I ve dropped it hundreds of times. the tip usually bends down a tiny bit when I drop it and I bend it back but this time I bent it back a little too far and it finally broke. 4For Jewelers I purchased this as an alternative to buying the mini torch. This is the only butane torch that was hot enough to do jewelry repair as I tried others. The only issue is a pretty big flame so distance on small solder jobs to make sure the heat is in one place only. 5Finally, a culinary torch that's not complete junk! Feels more like a tool than a toy. So many of these butane torches are total junk made in China and probably cost $1/each to manufacture. The JB Chef one I got and immediately returned after it broke immediately is an example. Although this one doesn't say anywhere that I can see on the device that it's made in Japan, it feels much more durable and utilitarian than the others. All metal moving parts, very nice rubber diamond pattern grip, easy adjustments. Ignore all the other culinary torches made in China. This is the one you want, and it's worth the extra few bucks. 5(Normal) High Quality torch. I read quite a few reviews on many torch brands and heard a lot about this brand. I was interested in the build quality more than anything.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 4Excellent torch - WAY better than the cheaper ones Sometimes reading Amazon product reviews can give a misleading picture of how a product actually compares to others. The rating for this Blazer torch is only 4 out of 5 stars, but having previously owned a cheaper kitchen torch that never really worked all that well, and then kicked the bucket after a few months, I cannot understand why this Blazer doesn't have five stars if the others get four. It is much more solid and well made than the cheaper torch I had before, better designed, the flame easily adjusted, and you can set it to stay lit when you put it down, if you're doing something that requires 2 hands. Plus it feels like a solid piece of machinery, not a cheap knock-off. This torch cost twice what I paid for the other one, but I'd rather have a good one that lasts than keep buying a new cheap one every few months. Happy customer. 5Works well for adding patinas to metals, especially copper. I bought this little Butane torch for the sole purpose of heating metals in order to get colorful patinas on them. It works great without getting so hot that it melts the metal and it's much easier to grab for a quick heat treatment than my mini torch. It is easy to light and you can adjust the flame. It also has a trigger that will make the flame a bit hotter if you pull it. I like it a lot and it has worked well for my projects.This is also a great little torch for firing small pieces of PMC clay pieces and soldering small jewelry pieces and many other uses I'm sure. I'm very happy with this little torch. 5If you buy a Micro torch, this is the one to buy! If you buy a Micro torch, this is the one to buy! This is my 3rd one and this brand and style is #1. I use mine about 12 hours a week on average. Great for silver jewelry creations and I use easy, medium and hard solders and flow perfectly every time. The self-igniting start is wonderful and the gas flow dial and air vent are very easy to adjust with the holding had so your other hand is free for a pick manipulations. 100% pleased and will buy this torch again and again!One of my creations made with this torch! 5Warranty works I actually liked this torch. However, it lasted about two months before the nozzle just broke clean off during a butane refill. On closer inspection it looks like there was just a weak point in the nozzle that caused it to break. I was told to check out the Blazer torches for their quality but strangely I have never had a single torch break in this fashion or even break this fast. Even the $30 creme brulee torch from Bed Bath & Beyond is better than this.I'm going to send the torch in to Blazer cust service, but it does not seem promising. Their site says to blindly mail in the product and hope for the best. I'll update on here when I find out if they decide to replace my torch with one that doesn't break.UPDATE:I was annoyed that the torch broke initially, but it looks like I just got a defective unit. I mailed the torch in (blindly) to Blazer and they sent me one back in about 20 days. I've been using the torch on and off and it works great like it used to. I have been keeping a close eye on the nozzle to see if it starts breaking in the same place, but so far it's been good. I definitely use it a lot less since I had to get a replacement torch after that broke and I rotate between the two by switching whenever one runs out of fuel. I updated my review to 3 stars. The other torch I bought while I was getting this replaced was a generic micro torch I got for around $20 and it seems to work just as good as this one, but looks and feels cheaper.I'll come back and post another update if the Blazer outlasts the generic torch, or something else happens to it. 3
