  1. I have had both of these lighters for close to 10 years. The Xtend has worked flawlessly - made in France. The Defi Extreme has worked well - made in China.

  2. i have used a Wilson burring tool for a number of years. Takes a specific angle for the punch cutter as opposed to when working a rifle casing. The other alternative is to use Dremel tool.
  3. 11mm twist punch from Xikar - kind of covers all bases. Only issue is that it doesn't stay sharp after a number of years. Bit of a challenge re-honing it.

  10. I would say exactly the same thing. Sir Winnie have had consistent flavour and construction over the years. If it were based on production cycle/availability then SW doesn't win. So whenever there is an opportunity then I would pounce on them.
  11. Although I enjoy the #2. Mag46 is a staple in my supply and prefer the format/vitola
