Instinctively we blow a fire to get it going. If you've ever singed your eyebrows or gotten smoke in your eyes from employing this fire stoking method then you'll love a blow poke! Heavy duty brass tubing is hollow; it has a mouthpiece at top end and harpoon like tip at other end. Blow through the blow poke to hasten the fire, use the poker tip to rearrange coals. Great gift... for yourself or someone else who is special on your list!
