From the outofhandyoyos.bigcartel.com website:
"Burner by Morten Jensen Vågen out of Oslo, Norway.

A fairly slim, hollow body, high wall, small bearing and lightweight yo-yo. The goal was to make a unique feeling yo-yo with specifications that are unusual for modern designs. The small A-bearing makes the yo-yo spin fast on soft throws compared to most C-bearing yo-yos, and the lightweight body makes it move quick and effortlessly through tricks if wanted. The walls are slightly angled to make less friction on the string, especially for unresponsive play. The yo-yo comes with a stock lubed flat bearing, and red RTV-silicone, perfect for responsive play.

As a Norwegian I wanted to implement some Scandinavian roots into the design. The cup of the yo-yo is based on the Swedish SKF wheel-shaped yo-yos from the 80’s, considering the shape of the cup and the industrial writings along the rim.

The earthy color tones represent a Scandinavian design color palette, inspired by nature and natural materials. They are also compatible with each other for half swaps."

The information that is laser-printed on the side unfortunately missed some important details like the yo-yo's name and where and when it was made.

To my knowledge, the SuperYo Samurai was the first aluminum hollow body yo-yo. Ten years later, in 2009, Saturn Precision Yo-Yos of Canada accomplished the same thing with the release of their Pure VSOP model.
