Whether you've got to start that campfire, like, 30 seconds ago, are ineffectually defending yourself from Polar Bear attacks, or just really want to get arrested at airport security, this hand-crafted hand-torch can do them all. Here's how to construct your own.

Envisioned and constructed by Instructables user PDRWLSN, this device utilizes butane fluid as the combustible with a trigger-activated Grill-starter providing the spark. It's a definite undertaking to build this—given that a laser cutter is the first tool listed—but how else are you going to remove the spiders from that shed out back? Ask them nicely to leave?
