This looks like an intriguing little stove. Does anyone know if they are distributed in the USA? I'm guessing that international shipping form the UK would be cost prohibitive.

Thois looks like an approximate equivalent: http://www.rei.com/product/829302/vargo-titanium-hexagon-backpacking-wood-stove. I believe there are others as well that are available domestically. they will accept alcohol burners, esbit, or local wood.

That Vargo looks nice. I already have this stove: http://www.fireboxstove.com/5-inch-folding-firebox and it is great. With the sole exception being that it weighs about 2 lbs.

Funny, as I went to the Firebox website to get the url link to post above, I found that they now have a new stove which is much closer to the British stove I started this thread about. I did not know they had a new model when I started this thread. I like the fact that the new Firebox stove folds rather than comes apart into pieces like the British model. Hmmm, I may have to get one of these new smaller/lighter Fireboxes.

I don't know about a US supplier of THAT stove but I came across these stoves that look very similar.

Funny thing is I was looking for a small wood burning camp stove in the UK and all I was getting was ones from the US except for that one.

Hope that helps.

I found one of these Sterno stoves up at the local Walmart for $5. Surprisingly, it works quite well for small twig fire cooking, not quite as good as the little solo stove, but for $5, what would you expect. It folds up nice and flat, and only weighs 11 oz. The frame is aluminum, the grate and struts are steel wire.

You can spend more I guess, but I got this to work just fine. The Solo stove serves a slightly different purpose, but another fold up twig stove doesn't seem necessary.

The Emberlit: http://www.emberlit.com/ , as linked to by Cauldronborn2, is made in the U.S. and works very well. I saw it demonstrated at a gathering in Salmon, ID, by it's designer, Mikhail, in 2011 and have purchased several myself. I will be getting more for family members.

The Emberlit now comes in a mini version and looks to be the same size as the stove the OP had asked about

I decided to give this one a try. Just ordered it. I don't actually NEED another stove, I just wanted one. So why not? I already have their original, bigger model and it is very nice and extremely solidly constructed. I like the one-piece-folding design as opposed to the seperate-parts-you-fit-together design of some other stoves.

I imagine that few of us actually need another stove, but I really like some of the small backpackable wood stoves I've seen here. I have a Vargo Ti Hexagon Backpacking Wood Stove which I really like so I don't need another, but when has that stopped me... smile I like the looks and $ of the Emberlit SS Stove, I don't need another in Ti.
