A compact and light wood stove. The grumpier version.
A while ago Savotta struck gold with their cartoon-like but 100% practical Happy Stove. That guy would just smile at ya even through the worst flames. Well, here’s his cousin with some anger management issues!
Seriously, though, a wood stove is a clever choice for hiking. All you carry is the stove and a pot - you simply gather its fuel from your surroundings. Thanks to the non-hinged strucutre the stove is light despite its durable stainless steel material.
- Storage bag included (made of Cordura 1000D with polyurethane coating)
- Weight: 250 grams
- Dimensions: 14cm x 14cm x 14cm
- Fire space dimensions: 10 x 10 x 9.5 cm, or without top cross beams 10 x 10 x 12 cm
Additional images display the previous version, but as you can probably believe, this stove does exactly the same tricks.
When using this stove, like any wood burning stove, consider fire safety with great care. Safety-wise, the best base for the use of this stove is a flat surface of rock. The small embers from the stove won’t harm the rock (unlike a camp fire would), and it’s easy to keep the embers from spreading fire.
The video contains a tip on how to make the stove burn with a low flame for longer. Regular cooking involves using roughly pencil thick sticks that burn with much greater speed and pace.
And here’s a tip from the manufacturer: to maximize burn time, saw and split a piece of wood so that its four parts nearly fill the stove, as in the following video.
