Proud Supporter of PYROJAM Events (www.pyrojamusa.com)

and Sponsor of PASSFIRE MAXIMUM LOAD (www.passfiremovie.com)

A Brief History ...

 

In 2017, we started to develop our own sparkless awl tools to support
the pyrotechnics industry in the safer preparation of using electronic matches,
initiators, and for custom fusing applications.

After an initial release sent to some of the top pyrotechnics users, suppliers, and supporters,
we took their feedback and went back to make some improvements in the tool, including
better ergonomics, stronger brass, and a revolutionary custom Pyrobolic[TM] notched tip.

With these improvements, these sparkless awl tools, more commonly referred to in the pyro
community as 'pyro pokes', were set to debut for sale the the public.  Being fully hand machined,
sanded, ground, coated, and polished, production was quite limited, but the demand for our
pyro pokes grew, even leading to a limited run fusing set, developed by popular demand.

AND NOW, we present our 3rd generation of pyro pokes,

the Pyro Inspired Multi Pokes, abbreviated as P.I.M.P Sticks!
With further feedback from the pyro community as well as tooling experts, we have
retained our great features, as well as made some amazing new improvements.

Superior Construction ...

 

All of our pyro pokes and fuse forks are fully hand tooled, machined, and assembled,
with quality checks being done at each step to best ensure the finest quality in our products.

Each of our fine, personally crafted tools contains the following most desirable features:

  • Weather resistant ergonomic handles (molded plastic mains, and coated wooden secondaries)
     

  • Our unique Pyrobolic[TM] notched tip on our pyro poke tools, to ease poking and reduce wrist torsion,
    working more like a drill-bit to get through tough cardboard and even many plastic tubes with ease

     

  • Incorporation of anti-spin set-pins in every poke and fork tool, to best ensure brass rods don't come loose
     

  • Narrowed sides of our beveled pyro poke fuse forks, to most easily and quickly insert fuse into poked holes
     

  • Inset tool sets where the secondary poke/fork fits within the main poke, reducing storage space
     

  • Color-coded butt-ends of the poke sets to easily identify tool pairs (red for matching, blue for fusing)
     

  • Exclusive use of sparkless C360 brass, known for its strength and resistance to corrosion
    with properties closely resembling that of steel
