Okay, HJ and CD, now you've gone and got me hooked. I thought I was over my stove addiction, but I just spent half an hour at spiritburner.com / CCS. What a treasure trove for stove nuts!

It's really interesting to me that there's so much variability in the weight of the stoves. My stove, without the control hook, weighs 8.5 oz (241g). Very interesting that yours weigh 1.5 oz each more.

6 oz for the pot stand?! Yeah, that's a bit nuts, isn't it? For my stove, 6 oz represents a seventy percent weight gain. The Trangia Westwind stand is about half that. It's still a bit heavy at 3 oz, but I haven't thought of anything better yet.

Interestingly, at the last shop where I actually saw a Borde displayed, they displayed it with a Westwind stand. They didn't even offer the Borde stands. Kind of silly to have a stand that weighs almost as much as the stove. As innovative as the stove is, you'd think they could have come up with a better stand.

Since my Borde didn't come with paperwork, I'm not sure where it was made. The filler cap/plug extends outward slightly so perhaps it was made in Kilchberg instead of Zurich.

I just saw a Borde Stove sell for over $300.00 on eBay. shocked People really like these stoves.

The stove that sold for over $300.00 was the rare version with a top-mounted burner and still had the tags on it. Mine was less than half that price and is the more common end mounted burner version.

$300? I don't think I have spent that much on backpacking and camping stoves in my entire life. I only have about nine....

Yeah, pretty crazy. Even the titanium version of the top-of-the-line Primus Omnifuel doesn't cost that much. Like I say, people really like Borde stoves.
