History of the Swedish torch

The Swedish torch gets its namefrom the thirty year war between 1618 and 1648.
During this war the torches were used by the Swedish soldiers.

Through a specially developed sawing process the soldiers were able to use fresh pinewood.

For a source of heat. This way they didn´t have to travel great distances for firewood at camp.


These days the Swedish torch is mainly used as a source of light and warmth in the garden.

The torch burns vertically and is very attractive to watch.

The glowing logs burning up slowly give off a pleasant heat.

Through the special technique of intake of oxygen the torch burns very evenly.


Depending on the type of wood used the torch will burn up more or less slowly.
