Controlled burning torch
The torch consists of a half-gallon cannister fitted with a handle. The cannister is filled with diesel fuel. A 3-ft. wand, with a check loop partway down its length and a wick at the end, runs out the top of the cannister. To use, the operator simply lights the wick and tilts the wand and cannister toward the ground. Fuel squirts out the top in flames and onto the ground in an even flow that lets you "write with fire" on the ground almost as though it were a giant liquid pen. "It's fitted with check valves so there's no chance of fire blow-back into the fuel cannister," says Drinnan.
The lightweight aluminum torch sells for $75.
