The magical guttering torches are always sputtering on the verge of burning out, but as an act of sheer will-power are able to keep burning. Before going to the great Torch Room in the sky, a guttering torch will give a last gutter. According to the bickering torch of the same castle, the guttering torch wasted oil on at least one occassion.

The only known guttering torch was found in Flatheadia Castle, 883 GUE, which gave its last gutter on Curse Day of that year.
