Blazer makes some great lighters.

Two of the more popular models are the PB-207 and the CG-001.

Feel confident in your purchase!

the blazers I have lost over the years have been mourned for long periods of time, they are about as good as it gets.

when I looked those up I didn't notice a built in cutter - the evo, chief and optimus do.

I have some lighters with cutters, I prefer to use my seperate cutter, but I'm old and set in my ways

blazer lighters are very good and a good value IMHO

I believe he was referencing the two he listed in the OP, and not the two I recommended.

Vector makes some nice torch lighters with a built is punch cutter that is very sharp. Perdomo also has a really nice light with a built in punch cutter that is very sharp.

if you can get a bargain on the lighter pop for one, but those one blades just are not worth the effort... glad to help!

I have used the Blazer knock-off brand, Prince Pocket torch and they are great. Pretty tough to find these days tough.
