Original Patented Design

James Hopkins Smith patented the first Blo-Poke in 1941.  Today, almost 80 years later, our timeless design has never changed.


Quality is never compromised. Every Blo-Poke is machined, assembled, polished and lacquerered by hand in Bristol, CT

American Made

The Blo-Poke is a great example of American Ingenuity.  Every Blo-Poke is crafted in our facility in New England.

The Blo-Poke Promise

Your Blo-Poke is guranteed for life.  Whether it's 1 day, 1 year or 50 years old, we will repair or replace your Blo-Poke anytime, for any reason, no questions asked.

"What an amazing experience we had! I had emailed to request a new tip for our Blo-Poke, which we had lost after many years of use. It was an engraved gift so worth 'fixing'. I was advised by Nick to send it back (even though we have had it for 30 years) and it would be fixed at no charge! We just received the repaired Blo-Poke and we are delighted!"  ~ Pat D

For the Fireplace

"We no longer build fireplaces for physical warmth—we build them for the warmth of the soul; we build them to dream by, to hope by, to home by."

~Edna Ferber

For the Woodstove

"On a cold day there is nothing better than a seat against a warm stove."

~From the book "A Pattern Language"

For the Outdoors

"Sitting around a fire together for hundreds of thousands of years is a big part of what makes us human."
