    "625 reprint version" put on the market from J-Field(SAKAESEIKI) in 1999.
    http://www.sakae-seiki.co.jp/
    It is heard that the drawing was obtained and reprinted from Austria.
    The tank material has changed from iron into the stainless steel.

    Hi Motoshi,
    Nice pics. I always noticed that the Phoebus stoves get special attention in Japan, Taiwan and Korea and bidders on ebay pay high prices.
    As an Austrian I do of course have some Phoebus stoves, it would be interesting to know why these stoves get so much attention that there are even replicas made. Can you give me a hint?
    (no doubt that the 625 is a really good stove extremely reliable work horse)

    Kind regards
    Michael

    Thank you for the photos of the Japan made Phoebus 625. I have only heard of it but not seen any. Now I also know of who was the manufacturer of it.

    I have visited the manufacturers web site that you provided but not found the stove there so I assume that it has been discontinued.

    Due to the fact that it is named Original Phoebus 625 and everything look the same as the Austrian made stove, I assume that it is not a copy only a change in ownership of the rights of manufacture.

    Maybe you could call them and ask about this and when it was cancelled.

    By the way, I have just got delivery of a NOS NGT Phoebus 625 from Germany. It seems to be a surplus German Army stove.

    Hello Michael.

    The Phoebus stove is still popular in Japan. It had been used a lot with the university, the climbing mountain club of the high school, and the hiking club, etc. before. It is a very reliable stove.
    Moreover, the shape of the stove is also peculiar. It is one of the reasons why this shape and the performance are being liked by the Japanese.
    I also am using 725 with the kayak of the sea now.

    Best regards,
    Motoshi

    Hello cmb56.

    J-Field(SAKAESEIKI) has not already produced Phoebus No.625 clones .
    I think that it was not able to obtain an advantage in still producing.
    I also know a lot of Phoebus stove has been put out by ebay by Germany. A lot of Japanese are buying it. The many are sold by the Yahoo auction of Japan.

    Best regards,
    Motoshi
