Title: The Honey Stove
Post by: MonsterBeetle on April 04, 2014, 08:20:52 AM
There are plenty of good examples of DIY stoves out there. Making a hobo stove is relatively easy to do but they don't always perform as well as you'd like.

I've owned one of these stoves for a couple of years now and it's been well used both as a stick burner and in conjunction with the good old trusty Trangia meths burner.

One of the best things about it is that it comes apart and folds flat, taking up very little space in you pack. In the case it takes up about the same space as a CD case.

The name coming from the hexagon shape bees use to create their hives.

Flat and disassembled;

This model is made from stainless steel that weighs in at 362g but a titanium version is also available weighing only 161g??.

It's a pretty good stove. It can be a little fiddly to put together but once you get the hang of it it's not too bad.
