The Blo-Poke is an outstanding example of American ingenuity. The original solid brass tool was conceived by James Hopkins Smith as he observed the French farmers during WWI blowing and poking their fires with ancient rifle barrels. In 1941 Smith trademarked and patented the original Blo-Poke.
Today’s Blo-Poke is handcrafted from the original mold in Bristol, Connecticut and continues to reflect fine American craftsmanship.
The entire product line is American made and the design remains the absolute best on the market today. There is no better way to keep those fires roaring than the original Blo-Poke.
