 I fired up the Svea 123 and my Optimus 99 last night, just because. They are beautiful pieces of equipment to me, brass, no generator to clog, just prime them, let them warm up for a minute so the fuel vaporizes and turn up the flame. They are a little heavy, but not overly so by today's standards and no less dependable than anything else on the market. I think that I've mentioned this before, but the Svea was the first back packing stove used on Mt Everest. I used the cup that comes with the Svea to heat one cup of water and a USGI canteen cup to heat up the water on the 99.

I can be just as angry at the jihadists for wanting to kill me, as they are angry with me for being an American.
