  • Accurately throwing knives
  • Efficiently learning bartitsu (baritsu to you Sherlock Holmes fans)
  • Carefully building a flamethrower
  • And, naturally, loads more!

All of the projects have short learning curves, are hands-on and affordable, and demonstrate true but reasonable risk. With a strong emphasis on safety, each potentially life-altering project includes step-by-step directions, photographs, and illustrations along with troubleshooting tips from experts in the field. Time to get Absinthe & Flamethrowers now, and take your life to the next level.
