Duck Candle SnufferTakazawa Candles
Japan's Takazawa Candle has been making plant-based candles from sumac, rice bran, and rapeseed flower oil since 1892. They are the only remaining candle maker in Nanao, Ishikawa Prefecture, following this traditional method of candle-making, using sumac wax from the Kyushu region and Japanese washi paper from Shimane Prefecture for wicks. Each candle is made by hand, one at a time, to ensure the highest quality. The flames of Takazawa's candles, symbolic of ancestral wisdom, are bigger and brighter than those of other makers due to the special wick made from a unique recipe dating back to the 16th century.
The flat bill of the duck allows you to extinguish a candle flame while reducing smoke. Because the flame of the candles glow larger than other candles with cotton wicks, trimming is important especially for tall candles. Recommended for candles with long burning times such as the Nanao series.
