Perhaps you'd let us know what it's like. Then again, for that price I
might just get one and see for myself!

Take into account the cost of the fuel and the stink.

But at least you can drink the fuel if you get desperate!

:-)

but for that you need the all pervading smell of a leaking
Primus/Optimus/Monitor paraffin stove that has saturated your sleeping
bag, plus the smell of singed eyebrows when the thing flares up :-)



too right. you cant beat the smell of paraffin on your cuffs as you shove a
well cremated sossie in your mouth

A fantastic, bomb proof bit of kit. I have been using two for the past 5 or
6 years, great foolproof gear (and this advice comes from a collector of
classic Primus stoves)
