Designed by YAMAZAKI Yoshiki, this is a wick trimmer made of brass and solid SAKURA (Japanese cherry) wood.
The handle is wooden, making it less heat-conductive - a good, comfy feature for the user.
When placed, the wooden handle sits horizontally, making the tip of the trimmer tilted upward. It is therefore designed not to stain the table with soot.
One can trim the wick without feeling much heat as the grip is situated away from the tip of the trimmer.
