The new T-18 is a step up in performance and price from the Toko T-14 digital iron that has been very popular the past few years. The new T-18 is clearly a different design and fabrication entirely.

Why is this iron exciting? Beside having a super nice form, soft hand grip, cord conveniently coming out of the side making it more manageable, thick graduated base plate, quality digital performance, it also goes much hotter than our other irons.
