Bushbox LF quick review
on: May 26, 2017, 09:17:27 AM
I've always wanted to try out one of these twig stoves, and recently bought my first, a Bushbox LF from Bushcraft Essentials.

It is a mid-sized stainless steel folding stove, and can be used with twigs, a Trangia alcohol burner or Esbit fuel tabs.

LF stands for "large foldable" and it fits in size between the tiny Bushbox and the large Bushbox XL. The folding feature is very convenient, as there are almost no separate parts that have to be assembled. Unfold it and insert the two trivets as pot stands, and you are good to go in 5 secs. Build quality is great, it is solid and substantial and will support an impressively heavy pot (10 kg++) without breaking a sweat.

This was me on a lazy Friday afternoon in the backyard boiling about 1 liter of water. Because tea.

Everything ready for action


Standard firestarter: vaseline cotton-ball firesteel and SAK saw


We have lift-off


Stove is easy to get going with a few thin twigs


Some generic hard anodized aluminum pot-set


A lot of fire...  :D


Almost boiling


A happy ending


A brew, of sorts...  :facepalm:


Stove is nice and thin when folded


I'm happy with this stove, and can recommend it

Nice review  :tu:

I've just picked up a firebox nano, mainly to use with a trangia but nice to have the wood burning capability if I need it.

Thanks Zoidberg!  :tu:

Apologies, it seems like my photos are rotated when I view this thread on the iPad, it's fine when I view it on the PC.  :think:

Those fire boxes are pretty cool.  Nice to have options when out.
