I have seen a candle wick trimming tool that should work just fine for this. It is designed to trim the wick of a candle of a jar, so it is very long and slim, with the cutting blade set at a 90 deg. angle from the rest of the instrument. Maybe it's just me, but the things on the Dennerle sight just looked cheesey. Douglas Guynn, In west Texas, where it's cool and sunny, but most of all, dry and windy.
