The Early Days

Throwflame is a small company located Cleveland, OH.

Throwflame was created in 2015 to bring to life the first ever commercially available full sized flamethrower.

In 2015 Throwflame released the first full sized commercially available flamethrower, the X15. The X15 Flamethrower sends a stream of flaming fuel or napalm up to 50ft. It is completely unrestricted in 48 states.

This unregulated flamethrower sparked a significant media response relating to legality. Flamethrowers are federally unregulated, meaning anyone can buy one without background checks or a waiting period. Shipping just like an amazon package, throwflame has delivered thousands of X15s around the globe

Throwflame Today


After several years of development, Throwflame has decided to add more fuel to the fire with the XL18 Flamethrower. This flamethrower on steroids, shoots over 110 ft and eats up ½ gallon of fuel per second. Making it the most powerful flamethrower ever available for purchase by the general public.

  • The XL18 has 10x more fire powerful than the previous model, the X15.
  • Effective firing range of 110ft
  • Napalm compatible
  • ½ gallon per second firing rate

Originally, the XL18 was designed for an international client as a part of a government procurement round. The XL18 is currently being sold both domestically and internationally to government agencies and private individuals.

Are Flamethrower Legal?

Yes. In the United States, flamethrowers are federally unregulated tools and not considered a firearm by the BATF. No need for any NFA tax stamps, licensing or even an FFL dealer. However, it’s the purchaser’s responsibility to ascertain that ownership and or use does not violate any state or local laws or regulations.


Sorry, no shipping to Maryland. Maryland’s fire code prohibits flamethrower ownership.


Yes, we do ship to California. Units sent are modified with a smaller nozzle to be considered California compliant versions, meaning that the range of the device will be less than 10 feet.

California users please read California Health and Safety Codes 12750, 12751, 12760, 12761 and ensure compliance before changing a tip that would produce a range over 10 feet.

According to California Health and Safety Code 12750(a) “Flamethrowing device” means any non-stationary and transportable device designed or intended to emit or propel a burning stream of combustible or flammable liquid a distance of at least 10 feet.
