    A recent find. This has only been used a couple hours. Has the Patria burner which I believe is the second version of the KAP stove. I like the vent screw on the pump, no fuel spray when releasing pressure. The pump has a very long pick up line, so the canister can be stood up instead of it having to lay in the snow or dirt. The pump is not as heavy as the Optimus pump that comes on the Nova, Omnifuel and 11 Explorer, but has the quick disconnect fitting, CEJN type. The burner had a long flame adjustment, could be very fine tuned if needed. Some stoves I have may only go a quarter of a turn. I really like the wick set up on this, pour some alcohol on it to partially fill the priming cup, then light the strip. The rubber washers on the Sigg fuel bottles are still soft and seal very well. One had pressure in it when I opened it up.
    Looks like the Trangia set came with a saucer that can be used as a pot lid and maybe a insulation pad when using the stove on snow or cold ground. The fry pan is painted orange on the bottom, not sure it will take the heat, does not look used, just some light scratches. The stove came with the upper and lower, Trangia 27 windscreens, with the storage sack, fry pan and the insulated lid.

    IMPRESSIVE, thx for sharing, you the man!
    I quick searched our site, sorry newbie here, this is 1st I've seen or heard of it, very nice and before it's time apparently?
    I lucked into this post
    https://classiccampstoves.com/threads/14736

    Nice that the pump is a compatable thread and with your comment of upright fuel (you're speaking from experience ty), convenient yes but does it also increase usable fuel capacity? "i think" thats approx 22 oz fuel bottle there?

    Did I get the impression the design is to match heat output of an optimus 00?... Sounds like you like the flame adjust, did you have comment re output on hi, along those lines? thx again

    Welcome to the KAP KLUB! Good to see the snow plate too!

    I think the finish on your frying pan is original.

    Hey, Duane,

    Great to see you again!! Hearty congrats on scoring your KAP Arctic setup!! That pump actually looks like the earliest version used on the #11 Explorer, but with a longer fuel pick up hose. Like you, I totally prefer the very long throw on regulated burners, so simmering can be very well set. And, the priming path setup on your KAP is the dog's Bs, IMHO. Excellent design, for sure!! Thanks for sharing your wonderful find here, and I do hope you will post some reports of your using it in the field, when you get time. Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Mark

    Great find, well done. I have been wondering about the Kap Arctic type Ultima Naltio stove, available from qvist.nl. Your pictures have made up my mind - I need to get one.

    I bought the KAP bits, but have yet to find time to assemble them into a functioning unit.

    Congrats Duane!!! :D/ :clap:
    So glad it went to someone here.
    It has a fantastic home with you!


    I was inches away from buying it, but had worked out a great deal for some kayaks and couldn't swing both.


    I would love to hear how it compares to your Explorer! 8)

    Looking forward to your winter camp pictures with it! :thumbup:

    As Spiritburner said; Welcome to the KAP klubb!!!
    A nice fraternity to be a part of... :D/

    That's a purchase you'll NEVER regret. And it's the first generation KAP Arctic, with the brass pressure release on the side of the pump head. Which also explain why you have the never-lost red on the Trangia 25 pan...

    Hi gang, I held off a few hours on the bay of evil, as the bin was high. I have no bills and came on some money this Spring unfortunately. :( I'll try to get this out this coming winter, not much snow for a number of years now.
    Sam, this adds to my 11 Explorer and most recently now, a old, regular Optimus 11.

    Only had this out in the snow once I think. Fired it up today for my annual stove firing, will take a couple months for all my stoves. Used petrol (Coleman Fuel) today. Wanted to have a roller coaster flame, so maybe I used kerosene last time, can't recall. Will have a go in a few with kerosene. Love that strip to pour meths down into the priming pan.

    Out snow camping with this, second time out using it. Had to figure out what size o-rings fit the quick connect coupling a couple years ago, then fit them into such a small fitting. Quite the chore.

    He'll growl when we are out by ourselves. He is a little more wary of people now since he is 22 months old, may circle them or not run all the way up to them. Always finding deer foreleg bones in the Fall.
