  1. I do not understand this concept on taking a twig stove with you. It requires either a purchase or some home-made construction. It simply adds weight to your pack. I simply gather a few rocks, pebbes and stones from the environment where I am at and recreate the same damn set-up for free. Well-placed stones will serve the exact same purpose at zero cost and zero weight. Rocks are everywhere! Why complicate your life by carting extra weight (and packing space) around?

  2. Edit this to 5 minutes, and use more than 2 angles and your viewership will triple. You struggled with a round file for two minutes man.

  3. I used a sharp pointy knife and follow your instructions working good so far but somtimes a perfect circular hole is too much to ask for

  4. If you used the file to just bend the lips down then you didn't really need a file, any rod or stick would do

  5. Hey Krik, out of curiosity, how many times have you used this stove? Has it held up well?
