I know there are arguments about the slow 'bloom time' as there should be on a primarily stove building forum but as Bill mentioned in one of his responses, the durability of these little suckers is a force to be reckoned with.
ps - I can't believe you retired your pot, Mags!
"Trade Offs" A good looking durable stove in the colder months may not be of much use. Slow bloom time on the bench may mean no bloom in cold weather. What worth is a non blooming stove in cold/cooler weather.
How does your sans rivet stove perform in cold weather Sam?
