Here are a few of my bushcraft stoves, The problem with that design C3 is you REALLY do not want to hold an alcohol while tryin to preheat. The silver stove started life as 2 Coke cans, 1 - 2 oz of HEET will get me a burn of approx. 6 - 7 mins ; pre heat time of approx. 1 min ( I use 1/4 wire mesh as pot stand to not waste BTU"s) Will boil 1 1/2 cup water in approx. 5 - 6 mins. The blue stove started life as an Alum water bottle , burn stats equal to coke can stove. The 3 piece stove is wood an started life as - Quart paint can & Progesso soup can also a pint paint can to store tinder . No burn data yet still working on this stove as it is a prototype , as you can see I have WAY to much time on my hands.....LOL Mickey

Quiet the array. I used to carry an expensive backpacking stove. It damn near saved my fingers on mount Washington.
I greatly appreciate the ingenuity of the video but honestly just need my knife and a piece of Flint when I hit the woods.
Carry less, cover more ground.
Still very cool.
I don't need No stinking signature.
Yeah I hear ya, weight can be a biotch at times. Don't really carry the wood stove, just to bulky, use it more around the house teachin my wife how to start fires & such. The coke can & water bottle weigh 0.632 & 2.952 oz respectively also with a 12 oz bottle of Heet , stove & fuel are under 2 lbs. Have made coke stoves for friends that hike the AT & they love the lite weight. Mickey
