    Nice photo! Interesting pocket knife. What make and model is that? Looks like a case?

    Ordered the cup and lid yesterday. Really looking forward to this one. I plan integrating it in my kit right away and putting it to use on my next trip in the near future.

    HC cup and lid arrived today. Washed it up and slipped it in with the rest of the kit. Took a picture while I had it all out. IMG_20180705_163428.jpg

    Used it as a double boiler, water in the bottom and the chili was in the aluminum foil about 1/2 way down, much easier to clean up and no burned sauce :)

    Oh my. This this stuff is potent.
    The cup/lid: Heavy Cover Titanium. The fuel is Firedragon, which is manufactured by BCB. The stove is a modified USGI Type II stand. And the contents, 16 oz of water.

    There was no unpleasant odor when I opened the blister pack containing the fuel cube. It is a solid cube, very reminiscent of candle wax and labeled, "green and clean." There was not a very noticable scent while burning, but there was a slight odor after it went out; somewhat similar to a candle having been extinguished.

    Some pretty intense flamage.
    IMG_20180717_055612.jpg

    And the aftermath: There wasn't any smoke and I did this enclosed in my garage to get an idea of the possible smell. The fuel did leave a bit of a waxy residue on the stand and on the floor, but I did not detect any residue or soot on the bottom of the cup.
    IMG_20180717_060137.jpg

    I suspect the residue is a result of solidifiers in the fuel. There is also a gel form available that comes in bottles. I imagine the gel would leave less, or possibly no residue.

    In conclusion, the water didn't boil, but certainly got plenty hot rather quickly. I think the cubes would potentially be more effective if contained a bit better during the burn. A much cleaner burn compared to other solid fuel, but a bit on the pricey side.

    Now for some post workout tea...

    I was out on the Isle of Mull recently with work and took the opportunity to get up on the north coast. I have a regular little spot there I use when I visit every 4 - 6 weeks. My Jetboil copy gave out on me but thankfully we've had a heatwave so I was able to gather some sticks to make a fire and cook some retort food. It tasted all the better for being done over a real fire. Canteen worked great.

    It's in their Instagram, it's a titanium cup, pot with basil and lid. Someone posted it on this thread I think within the last few pages. It looks amazing and they said coming within a couple of weeks. Its like 4-5 weeks no release.

    I've seen Keith are now doing a 'nalgene' shaped bottle at 1200ml with screw top lid. I've been trying to ask them which of their mugs would be suitable to put on the outside, alas the language is a barrier.

    Meaning : Oasis canteenish w/no perimeter seam protruding, or a round bottle?
    If shaped like Oasis canteen :

    "We are working on it!
    Thanks"

    Sure like that SEREchete-WSK Hybrid! Question. Who did your leather for the tracker that you have? How does one get ahold of a SEREchete-WSK Hybrid? Thanks!

    @Raven67 the SEREchete- WSK Hybrid is likely a one off... you can check it out at the PNW Gathering. I’ll be glad to answer any all questions there.
    The Tops TBT1 is in a Badger Claw Leatherworks sheath. The rest are made by the makers of those versions of Tracker models.

    A good experiment would be to let it freeze solid. Would the seam split? Just curious. :33:

    at $155 a throw... you go first... lol!
    Here is some science.
    My nalgene was half full, in the front seat of the jeep (soft top)frozen solid, 64 ozstainless steel bottle 3/4 full, back seat of the jeep frozen solid, HC in a Helikon canteen carrier, completely full, in the cargo area, didnt freeze solid.
    Weird.
