Reviewed by:

Now there's a safer way to play with fire. The Firedragon is a three-foot long steel tube that sends your breath through a venturi to revive a smoldering fire.

According to the manufacturer, it's based on a principle used by Civil War soldiers, who blew into their gun barrels to start a fire or to keep one going.

The bifurcated end of the Firedragon can also be used to move logs or poke at the coals.

  • The Firedragon is priced at $34.99 (August 2005).
