just another tool


Since I got a new torch I thought I would show you the rest of my little tool kit.



This bad boy gets up to 2500 degrees with the flick of a button. I was at the dentist a week ago and they were melting something to make an impression and they were using a torch like this - I copied the name down and ordered one when I got home - perfect, small and efficient!



This is my knife to go bag with my new little torch waiting to see where it goes - I took off the base of the torch and it snugs right in. A couple three knives worth over a couple hundred each (bought years ago so who knows the value now) One custom knife that I had a deer antler handle put on and that cost a buck or two on an already pricey knife - again done years and years ago - and other utilitarian knives I dont mind beating up. There are some tongs that are black that I got them from my friend in Norway (thanks again Anette) but you cant see them behind the knife sharpener and extra fuel for the torch.



Three different thermometers just in case. One goes up to 250 one goes up to 500 and one is digital and I dont know how far it goes up since I hardly use any of them - see my old little hand held torch - its the blue thing - it did not get the job done if I had to do a lot but it sure is cute and portable! I use chopsticks to place things on plates - in case you are wondering. There are some things missing like the mini baster and maybe another gadget or two that I took out and cant quite remember what they are right at this moment. It all rolls up and fastens with velcro straps and has a nice shoulder strap. This is mine now show me yours!

you have a nice chef-stash growing there. I have a small chef knives set going, albeit small. I would LOVE to get a torch though so I can finally make my own creme brulee.

For a minute there I was trying to figure out what you would use the contents of the belt for...something involving fava beans and bottle of Cianti (spelling?....Silence of the lambs reference) Boy you take your kitchen tools seriously!

Was it just me, or did anyone else get a laugh at the deer antler knife that cost a buck?

Very punny Doggy.. Very punny indeed.
