    My wife's shopping philosophy, cited in another thread. It justifies any purchase: "There are needs, and then there are wants." :)

    Your Wife is very right, and obviously a smart lady!

    But then there is unemployment, and starvation, if we(I) indulge all wants... :cry:

    How's the windproof-ness on them? Which one do you use? Z-Plus or Thunderbird? If you have both, which one is better?

    Thanks. [IMG]

    I think they are the same to be honest - quality of both is certainly about the same.

    I use a torch one for paracord type stuff and the soft flames for shmoking ;)
    Soft flame compares to regular Zippo inserts, and the torches are obviously more windproof as they are teeny weeny pocket rockets :D

    Wow, that "natural" patina develops pretty fast in your part of the world. :D

    How did you create that patina? Some sort of acid?

    Gun bluing. I was looking for different effects. I've since removed it.

    A Sarome touch sensor butane lighter I've found on bay for 10$. This one runs with a battery (A23) and sparks if you just come in contact with the inner metal ring around the logo.
    It puts a little smile on my face every time I start this thing. :D
