Factual error: The customs warehouse guards are carrying guns. Canadian custom guards do not carry guns at any time.
Right after De Niro successfully blasts his way into the safe and retrieves the scepter, Norton shows up and, aiming a gun at De Niro, instructs him to hand over the treasure. Norton justifies this double-crossing by explaining his theory that De Niro and Marlon Brando were gonna split the lion's share of the loot and only give a pittance to Norton. De Niro does hand over the scepter, but as the security guards enter, they both make a run for it. A few minutes later, away from the crime scene, Norton phones De Niro, who tells him to check the bag with the scepter. Norton sees that he was given a fake scepter while De Niro has the real one. De Niro retires (the scepter is presumably his last score/robbery). He meets up with Angela Bassett at the airport. Meanwhile a massive manhunt commences for Norton, whose prospects look grim.
Question: During the sequence in the vault, De Niro uses a kind of torch. This torch emits sparks and is powerful enough to cut steel but is small enough to take with him. Is there such a torch? And if so what does it use for heat?
