Oh ya it breaks down flat perhaps 2 -3 inches high. I'm sure we will do some more refinement as well.

It can have a base to operate as a full stove. It's just that you can use it bottomless to save weight, make it bigger if you need. I'll be doing more testing tonight.

I am intrigued by these stoves. I know I would also like to know the weights of the tipis.

The 6 Person is about 4 lbs 8 ounces - 6 lbs depending on stake set, rear screen, liner, stove jack. It could be less if you want to fashion a pole in the wilds I guess.

The 4 person is a pound less, a little less with accessories. Complete two wall with stove jack around 5 lbs give or take a couple ounces.

The 2 person is closer to 2 lbs 8 ounces complete. Add a few ounces for liner, 3 ounces for a stove jack, or loose a few ounces for if you pitch with a rope or pole.

Thank you Kevin. I was waiting to see how you found the holes to insert the threaded rods. That part of assembly has got to be a challenge. Not for you but for everyone else.

How is the stove held together when burned in the bottomless mode?

Price:$325.00

Titanium is pricey, wow.

Well, the threaded rods go in pretty easy, there is a bit of a gap so they go in easy.

Held together in bottomless, there are some small straps that can be ran across the side or used on the bottom with the rods.

Titanium is pricey, at least, I hate to say it , it is less than some stainless stoves that take down and is less than all except one other titanium stove, and it is a fair bit larger than that stove

It comes with pipe, stuff sack, damper and all that as well.

BTW I've been meaning to order one of your little stoves. What is your favorite ?

Those are seriously big chunks of wood that go in there.

What kind of burn time does this stove provide for one load up of wood?

I put my question on YouTube comments.

Here is the answer I got:
@backpackinonline The wood was dry beech. We achieved warmth for an hour to an hour and half. Granted, we had rocks stacked around the stove. I removed them for the video. The rocks hold heat for hours after the fire is out. At 1.5 hours, some dry kindling is all that was needed to pick the fire back up. I feel the reason for the longer burn time is that the bottom was not on. Thin metal cools fast, especially if there is air space under it. This would be great if colder temps!!!

Maybe, if set on a flat rock and added rocks around would be good.
