    :-k Never seen one of these before! Looks handy and compact with a very low center of gravity (pots won't fall very deep! :lol: :D/ ). It is a bit a fore-runner of the modern stoves with separate fuel can/pump unit and burner unit.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Best regards,

    Wim

    Have you tried lighting it?

    It looks like it would produce an interesting flame.

    If You ask Me - I CANT answer - because I am not the owner... This foto was from the beginning auction...

    I find this auction and copy here photo.

    Construction is similar to the Arara folding stove.

    Have a closer look at the pictures. The holes in the burner are not regularly spaced and the join in the pipe is a little rough. The pump is quite recessed but doesnt have any obvious lock to prevent it coming out The cap has a safety release but there is no way to regulate the flame.
    It looks on first look to be a must have stove but theres something not quite right.
    I wonder if this is a commercially made stove and if it ever worked as intended.
