    Just pulled the trigger on one of these.

    May or may not be any good but for the price, not a biggy.
    I have a bit of time off over Christmas so hopefully it arrives early.
    The main reasons I went for it was it's light weight, quick to assemble and cheap.
    I plan to use it instead of making a full fire, with its associated risks, fuel use and environmental scars.
    For a brew, or a light meal, I think it will suit me fine.
    Anyone have any experience with this sort of stove?
    Cheers

    Given that it's basically a hobo stove it should work fine. So long as it doesn't collapse.

    These use a pin system that should prevent it collapsing but, as I said, time will tell.

    A bit of a splurge of late, gearing up for the hiking season. These just arrived:

    Fiddleback Forge Hiking Buddy (sunburst jade scales), Diomedes Earl Xcarry sheath, and a @HowlingDingo pouch (kangaroo, cane toad and shark bone). All excellently crafted!

    I'm waiting for a Katana Boy .... very keen to see how it goes.

    I've also been very keen to get a nice bucksaw (like Redtail's above), but I decided I'd make one (... some time ... along with all the other projects I haven't gotten to yet ...)

    Meanwhile I hope the Katana Boy will be a low-tech chainsaw !

    If you don't know it, the Silky Katana Boy is a giant folding saw
