Hello one and all,

I spent years being burned by an inferno of a trick and more years with a flaming match that keep coming apart. So after years of designing my own I present: The Portable Flamethrower

You use/borrow and lighter or matches and the flame jumps up to 3-4 feet high.

See it online at www.FiredUpEffects.com or pots here with any questions.

Questions: How long can it sustain that flame???

Does it get hot in your hand???

You can keep the flame going for about 25-30 seconds each time but I try to keep it under 10 sec.

It will not get hot in your hand.

This looks very much like John Kennedy's Flamethrower Match.

You may want to check it out. I think this item is still on the market. The cost is about $20.00

I used one in my Comedy club act back in the early 80's

The effect is similar. Mine (in my opinion) is superior. It also uses a different trigger system for the flame (making it adjustable) and a different system for keeping it where you want. The Portable Flamethrower is also designed to not break apart.

Having used all the fire products on the market, I wanted to make one that I feel is the best, safest, and most effective.
