A CUT ABOVE
The TL Marshall Co. offers a new way to clean half burnt and unattractive candles to provide longer use. The Candlecutter, an electronically heated knife, features a heating element inside a 6-inch surgical stainless steel blade. The instrument assists in removing the melted part of a candle more easily and safely than a kitchen knife. It also can be used in candle design and wax sculpting. For more information, contact Lorraine Marshall at 818/566-4143 or visit www.candlecutter.com.
