lol. Now there's a visual. Yeah, the Borde is the simplest white gasoline stove that I know of. Everything is right there where you can see it. No hidden parts that are hard to get to or anything like that.

But I guess I'm old school -- if it ain't liquid fuel, it ain't a real stove. My old, much loved Svea is long dead
It ain't over 'til the fat lady sings... If you've still got your old Svea it might be possible to restore it. If the tank is cracked or something like that, probably not, but a lot of the time you just need a new jet, new valve packing, and a new wick.

Added oil for the pump, Coleman fuel labelled 2001 (!), tightened a couple of fuel connections, and she lit up on the first match. Wow. Melted snow and made tea. Talk about memory lane.
I've heard of Coleman fuel being used that was 30 years old without problem. I've used 20 year old fuel without problem. Coleman fuel lasts a good long time if it's kept well sealed.

Your multi fuel sounds pretty cool. What model is it? 550? Got pix? smile

Thanks a lot, that was fun reading smile

I think the popularity of this stove is due to the small size and convenient form factor AND the genuine fascination for a design that is really awesome cool, dangerous and minimalistic while at the same time being practical. If you can live with the limitations, that is.

Thanks for the review. I'm enjoying your stove writeups.

I have this stand which I've used with a Trangia. Supposedly fits the Borde

If I post interesting stoves, that's good. If I post stoves and write in a way that allows people to find stoves interesting, that's better. smile

Yep, all that, particularly the fascination. This is a raw, downright uncivilized stove. I think many find that uncivilized aspect refreshing in this day and age.

I haven't tried one of those. How's the build quality? Any problems with stability or how it fits together? Does it fit a Trangia burner well?

the one on the right is my user--the one on the left is in a safe deposit box to pay for any future hip replacements---OK..kidding--

The 3 pieces slipped together quite snugly. The Trangia burner is quite loose in it but I don't think it'll suddenly fall out. I've only used it on a pretty flat surface so I can't say much about stability on uneven ground.

Thanks,

Interesting! Are both of those windscreens Borde products? I've seen repros of the Borde products, so I'm curious if those are both actual Borde products. How much do those windscreens weigh?

Mine didn't come with a windscreen, although I guess I'm not too disappointed about that; they look heavy and a little unstable.

Not by much...
