Let The Good Times Roll!!

the hand-held,dripping fuel method of pre-heating a Borde should be done over a non flammable surface.

I've heard of this stove, but never seen one before. That's one cool/scary stove.

I may need to find one!

Of course, my wife thinks my 1970's era Optimus is scary when I prime it. . .

Yes, definitely. lol.

I don't know if anyone has noticed, but most of my stove tests are done down in a gravelly creek bed on a rock. The rock won't burn, and there's a creek full of water right there in case something goes south. And of course I inspect my stoves before I light them.

They're a tad expensive. There are still new ones out there, but expect to pay around $200.

I bought mine used for $130 total, which is pretty much fair market value. That's a lot of money for such a little stove, but they are cool little buggers. And they put out a fair amount of heat. This is a good small winter stove. The Borde will work in temperatures that are way too low for many other compact, light stoves.

and these little stoves are just not a blow torch for boiling water to make pots of mush while mountain climbing.
i cook just about anything and everything with mine.
here i'm working on a bannock.

you can adjust the heat from simmer to boil with the adjusting wire,you can see the red tape on the end so i don't loose it.with just one moving part the Borde is fool proof.

Mmmm. Looking good.

I've been able to get a pretty low flame on mine although I haven't tried any real simmering with it.

Yeah, it's kind of an oddball isn't it? I first saw it on zenstoves.net which has all kinds of interesting stuff. I've got lots more oddball stuff. lol. Stick around.
