The blowtorch is of ancient origin and was used as a tool by gold and silversmiths. They began literally as a "blown lamp", a wick oil lamp with a mouth-blown tube alongside the flame. This type of lamp, with spirit fuel, continued to be in use for such small tasks into the late 20th century. Traditional kerosene blow torches were generally superseded by new propane fuelled versions from the 1950s onwards.
