    Plenty of scope in this months contest- simply enter your best, favourite, most interesting, whatever 'camp stove', as long as it is a Swedish brand.

    Note new rule below about previous winning entries.

    Post your nomination as a reply to this post.

    The rules.
    • Stove must feature in the Stove Reference Gallery (SRG) with a link posted in the entry. So now's the time to get those stoves photographed & posted! If it's been listed for years already that is ok too.
    • Maximum of 2 pictures in the entry. The pictures must show the stove working & in it's entirety. More pictures can of course be shown in the linked SRG entry - as many as you want!
    • Previous winning entries are excluded.
    • Stove must be presently owned by the member.
    • One entry per member.
    This nominations post will be open for the month of August. At the end of the month the post will be closed & the qualifying stoves placed in a blind poll for members to vote for. The poll will remain open for 1 week. Most votes is the winner.

    The winner will get a SotM Winner notation on their posts & profile & a £10 voucher code from The Fettlebox

    Good luck & have fun

    This was a difficult decision, my Primus 77 was a contender too, but in the end I decided to enter my Optimus Campingo No 2.
    Here's the link to the original post.

    Not a competition entry but I couldn’t resist the prompt Duncan.

    ‘Touring Term in 3D - stereoscopic image, look intently and squint a bit and the 3D kicks in.

    If this months Theme is FAVORITE this has to be my entry. Seen here The stove is in no way unique or rare, and in every way unique and rare. It was my first. I remember reading reviews, comparing stoves, weighing the choices, until my decision. I also bought the padded cell for it at the same time. It’s been with me in the high mountains and short hikes. It is the ideal size, always reliable, always looking as lovely and mysterious with the eastern script as when I first saw it. No stove can ever take it’s place. Ivan

    My favourite Swedish stove? Mmmm.
    It has to be an Eleventy one.

    This is my Optimus 111 silent burner shown here, which is quiet and surprisingly powerful. Ideal for early morning brews and breakfast.

    I'm nicking that one, combines two of my favourite things - stoves and LOTR.
    I used part of the party speech for my retirement speech.

    @Robert Radcliffe , I used that term (eleventy one) to my brother, who of course knew Bilbo's age, referring to my 111. He said he had to Google the term and it took him to CCS, so its an Official Term now.

    I really do not like this type of slang. Because it is only searchable by those that know the term. Anyone that wants to read about 111, search the term '111'. What makes CCS great, is that there is so much information, and for those that wants to find this information, searchability is important.

    I could claim two Swedish brands here, but it is the stove part that matters (and the windshields are a moveable feast depending on which one I drag out first..).

    My favorite swedish stove (for the moment) is my Primus No. 210 from 1953, which can be seen here: Primus No 210 (1953)

    There cannot be too many Eleventy-ones in the race. This is a favourite since it has all the original accessories including the much sought after rag wiper cloth (a.k.a. comfort blanket).

    @afoton I agree searchability is important. But remember the Shire dialect has been around since the last Age. :content:
