The BloPoke is a 48 inch long device for poking the fire in your wood burning fireplace (and for rearranging the logs). The BloPoke also allows you to blow a directed stream of air onto your fire to rekindle the blaze. It works great and is fun to use!
The BloPoke can be engraved and makes a great gift for any occasion! Many BloPoke orders are from current owners who want to give BloPokes to family and friends.
The BloPoke is American made and marketed by Mike Greenwood of University City.
