Camp Stoves: The Svea 123


The Svea 123.

Arguably the pinnacle of white gas stove design.  My little Svea 123.  It is essentially a brass fuel tank and a burner; a Molotov Cocktail with a valve.  And it comes in one of my favorite colors, shiny brass.  During a recent extended power outage, I used this guy on my electric stove top for making up the coffee.  Collectors will probably cringe at this but I ditched the little aluminum cup years ago as I don’t cook in aluminum.

If you’re interested in the early history of the liquid fuel camping stove, have a look at an older write-up HERE.

    Form and function, we have an older Sievert Svea 123, neat little stove. Not much to go wrong that I can see.
