    One more Fire stove, this one made for the Swedish market. This one is made of brass. Apart from that the only differences are on the box, where some changes reflect the lack of patent, but instead focuses on the protected Trademark.

    It is also renamed "Fickspritkök" which would translate to pocketalcoholstove. Fire svensk 1.jpg Fire svensk 2.jpg
    Otherwise the box is almost the same.

    Thanks for the opportunity to compare this with your stove HERE.

    It's interesting that whereas your stove instructions referred to alcohol, petrol or kerosene as alternative fuels this one leaves no uncertainty that it's for alcohol.

    Nice stove.
    I assume the rotating sleeve is not alcohol-tight, and that you would therefore not be able to carry the stove filled, and would have to burn it dry to prevent leakage?

    @ArchMc You would have to ask @boknasild about that - I have not fired up mine.
    This Swedish version is up for sale at Tradera just now.

    Looks like an interesting heater and still got the box it came with. Or is it really a stove.

    Cheers

    @ArchMc I have thought about it a bit. The instructions for my stove states that the filling should be to "drippingpoint". So I guess it depends if the cottonfilling is able to hold the alcohol or not. The rotating sleeve is NOT alcohol tight - that is for sure.

    @presscall This is alcohol only for sure, yes. I also noted that whereas my stove was stainless steel, this is brass. I would guess this is a later version, since kerosene and white gas is no longer an option, and the materials are geared towards alcohol.

    Just guessing though, no hard evidence to support these assumptions.

    I had to replace the filling in mine with the stuff you use around the doors of wood burning stoves.
    To use I take of end cover and fill with meths until filling is saturated. I stop there because this burner will leak everywhere.
