The HotBlade-X mini torch can be used to heat or ignite items, and can serve several other purposes:

  • Solder
  • Thaw frozen locks. Note: Heat the key first
  • Remove rusted nuts from bolts
  • Light the grill
  • Apply shrink tubing
  • Light candles
  • Handicrafts
  • Light cigars and cigarettes

HotBlade-X - SS Cutting Blade

Blade down
HotBlade-X cutting sail line HotBlade-X cutting sail webbing
HotBlade-X cutting sail canvas

The mini torch can heat the SS blade to over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit and slice through most line, cordage, rope, up to ¾-inch diameter, like a hot knife through butter. Use the HotBlade-X to slice webbing, and repair tattered canvas and sail cloth. Slice onto the attached cutting plate so the hot blade will not mar the boat’s fiberglass. Rest heated blade on plate when done.

HotBlade-X unassembled

To heat HotBlade-X / Mini-Torch, release safety by pulling red lever back, then ignite torch by pushing red lever down. Before slicing line, allow 15-20 seconds to heat the stainless steel cutting edge to 2000 degrees. Allow blade to melt through line. Do not press hard. Always use attached cutting plate when using the HotBlade-X.

Note: The HotBlade-X is not intended for production or industrial usage.

Great tool!
Gary Guetzko of IA | September 2015
Ok, I admit it. I thought it was a bit of a toy, so I had the HotBlade-X for quite some time before I actually used it. That was a mistake. Just tried it for cutting and trimming some double braid lines, and it worked great. It is a little fiddly to keep it lit, but well worth it. Cut the line easily and left a nice seal on the end. I would highly recommend it!

Hot Blade
John Schofield of Houston, TX | February 2011
I've been using a Hot Blade for nearly a year now and it's been terrific.
I use it regularly for cutting and tidying three strand and braided lines.
I also use the blow torch function for applying heat shrink tube on electrical connections.
I couldn't do without it now.

Good solution to a frequent need
Jim Melton of UT | January 2011
As a sailor, I frequently find myself in need of cutting one type of line or another, and it's always frustrating when the ends start fraying or the core and sheath don't stay together. But having an electric hot knife is both expensive and inconvenient to have on board a 40' sailboat. The HotBlade is a reasonably-priced answer to the problem and I've been very pleased with mine.

Don Milner of MO | January 2011
I am fairly disappointed with this product. The flame is very finicky and almost always goes out when you point it down to cut a length of rope. Works good if you can get the flame to stay lit, but I usually lose patience after the flame goes out 3 or 4 times.
