Best DX torch! – Honest Flame Jet Torch Tool Reviews

posted by redlion on 03/25/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Looks & Feels like a professional tool
Propane-viewing window
Consistent reliable easily adjustable flame height 2-5cm.
Looks like a lightsabre handle.
Cool looking red flame
Safety & flame lock (not very safe tho)
Cons:
This is not a lighter. It's a bloody torch. (see 3425 for a good lighter-torch)
Not a flamethrower. May be modifiable
No 'torch' mode - only jet flame
Not sure if I can cook with red flame
Packaging I received was quite damaged - but torch OK.
Either burns a lot of or leaks butane - not sure yet
Other:
Bottomline:
I've had a lot of DX torches, incl 6824, 7745, and 3425.
This is far better than the 7745, or competing pen torches.
The Honest 6824 is a good alternative workshop torch, has more flame options, but poorer build quality.
If you want something to use as a lighter, look at 3425.
Both 3425 and 6824 are better flamethrowers out of the box. (3425 easily modified past reasonable safety levels)
