    Hope Manaslu 160 made in japan.
    This is a great clone of Optimus 8R.
    All hinges are riveted.

    Thanks Yosh.

    I am somewhat a fan of 8R clones, and that is one (or two) that I have not seen before. Even though we call them clones, each one is a little different. If you wanted to post more pictures of them, I for one would not complain :content:.

    The stove appears to be well made.
    I also would like to see some more detailed photos.

    Thank you for the additional excellent pictures. As you already pointed out, the use of rivets makes the stove really stand out. Interesting chain also.
    Well done.

    Nice score Yoshi! :clap:

    Yoshi VERY kindly helped me to get Manaslu stove when I visited Tokyo. They are very well made stoves indeed.
