The X15 flamethrower is a personal, consumer flamethrower that exists purely because of course it does. Who hasn't wanted to stand with a tank on their back, arms akimbo while spewing great gusts of fire into the sky? Now you can, for $1,600. When I asked XMatter, the folks behind the X15, why they decided to sell consumer flamethrowers, co-founder Quinn Whitehead immediately responded, "Why not? This is America, land of the free," before laughing and digging into his real pitch. "It's really an interesting product; there's nothing else like it." When they started out, there was no other consumer flamethrower on the market, meaning that anyone looking to get into the throwing-flame game would need to drop around $10,000 on a military flamethrower.
