Bernzomatic Introduces New Firepoint® Creator Tool For Makers

The new tool allows makers to “create with fire”

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- 06 23, 2022 – Bernzomatic®, the industry leader in handheld torches since 1876, announced the launch of the new FirePoint Creator Tool, available nationwide. This new tool was built to help Makers achieve truly unique, crafty creations that are fine and detailed with a precise and powerful flame. With the new FirePoint Creator Tool more makers will experience the satisfaction of creating with fire.

“We wanted to add high heat to the toolboxes of all makers, so that more people can create with fire,” said Janna Stanford, Bernzomatic brand director. “We listened to the needs of makers across the country – from avid torch-users to inspired creators. They wanted more high heat, powerful tools that offered precise control for detailed projects. The solution is the FirePoint Creator Tool, which pairs the two together in a lightweight form, acting as an extension of a maker’s hand, allowing more people the ability to create and finish projects with full control.

After a soft launch earlier this spring, the FirePoint Creator Tool is now officially available nationwide at The Home Depot in stores and online at $69.98 MSRP. The tool is set to launch in ACE Hardware and Canadian Tire this summer. At home improvement stores, makers can enjoy a one-stop shopping experience for everything they need to create fine, detailed projects – from hot tools to raw materials, such as wire, wood, glass, metal, sandpaper, paint, epoxy, resin, and more.

The FirePoint Creator Tool was thoughtfully designed for a controlled, single-handed use that results in increased precision and improved overall safety in every project. Users can enjoy an adjustable precision flame, versatile grip handle, instant on/off ignition, continuous flame lock option, 41” fuel hose for all the maneuverability you need to push the boundaries of creativity in your projects. The durable fuel stand has a built-in torch dock to safely and conveniently store the hot tool after switching off. The tool is compatible with Bernzomatic 14.1 oz MAP-Pro® and 14.1 oz and 16 oz propane fuel cylinders.
