I like the Fiskars. Is that the newer model?
Its hard to tell from here, but I am guessing that is a Zebra 12cm pot? I have the 12cm and 16cm Zebra's & a Cecil & Co Billy and they are great.
Also like the Hobo stove. Did you use/ make your own aluminium cross braces? I am yet to do that, as the Hobo stove they sent me was damaged in the post.
You inspired me to head out this weekend, thanks
Here are my billy's. I just got some old military leather straps for them from the U.K. I am a bit of a mess kit/ cooking pot nerd
Great minds think alike . Yep , as you I have the 12 and 14cm pots plus the Zebra saucepan and mug . Also it looks like we have the same stainless steel dixie set . I made the cross braces from some aluminium stock I had lying around and they come apart for easy storage . I've only had cheap hatchets in the past which were crap so I bought the fiskars about 3 year ago and pleasure to use .

Cecil & Co tin plate Billy can is a very unrated bit of kit and at about $10 a steal. I started with Kmart Billy then moved on to that one which is a heaps better.Wish Cecil & Co did a stainless Billy as well that would be totally epic.
About $40 seems high for a Aussie army mess kit but will last a lifetime or two. Same basic design as mine but looks like they changed the maker later or something. Sometimes I just take one half of the kit with a Billy can. Both are really good bits of gear you can get locally that don't cost that much...
Video some dude did on the Aussie army mess kit..
Looks solid as a rock .
I lost one to rust up the back of the shed,it was a big one I hardy used. I had one going on 8 years...Did you miss this
I wanted to ask you, do you know how long these Cecil & Co. tin Billy's will typically last? I try to dry them out and did the oil coating thing in the beginning, but mine still seems to gather 'some' rust? Cheers.
Was have a tidy up of some gear and grabbed my SS teapot that I haven't used for awhile . So out to the fire pit to boil up for a cuppa . I've had this little gem for years , just throw a hand full of tea in and bobs your uncle . Nice heavy gauge SS .
