To properly care for your candle including a quality burn and a longer life, you must trim the wick. You can try using scissors, but they just don’t have the right angle of attack to get the correct length. Our Matte Black Wick Trimmers allow you to maintain your wick at the optimum 1/4 inch length. With a precise even cut, the saucer style base catches the snipped portion of the wick, saving your candle from wick debris. This is the perfect tool for any candle connoisseur.
