It is a very solid build and holds a lot of butane. I like the lock on the back so I can just point the flame without having to hold the trigger. The nozzle has yet to clog after many uses. I have not tried annealing steel with it yet although I have my doubts about accomplishing that without a lot of time and butane.
The piezo igniter element died not long after getting the torch. I replaced the igniter with one scavenged from a bbq lighter and it is working perfectly again. During disassembling the lighter, I noticed a design flaw in the trigger that mess with the igniter. I just put some hot glue in the gap and the lighter works like new again. It was a cheap fix.
Apart from the trigger design flaw, I love this torch.
I would recommend getting this torch if you are handy. Hopefully I am one of the few with issues with the igniter.
