Optimus Svea white gasoline Stove on Ebay
The OPTIMUS SVEA - cult stove of the climbing society - is an ultra-classic lightweight gasoline stove in solid brass. It has been around for a century and still sets the standard for compact outdoor cooking equipment. We doubt that any other outdoor stove has been field tested as much as the OPTIMUS SVEA. Widely used by climbers all over the world, this stove is renowned for its performance at high altitudes. The OPTIMUS SVEA is ideal for single ventures, high altitude cooking or whenever stuff volume and weight must be kept to a minimum.. The lid of the stove also serves as a small cooking pot. Weight: 550 g. Measurements: 100 mm x 130 mm. Average burn time: up to 50 minutes at maximum output on one filling (0.12 L) at high output. Average boil time for 1 L of water: 7 minutes depending on climate, altitude, etc. Includes burner with valve and a small pot.
It was introduced as a model in 1955. The claim of being around for a century has been overstated in advertising for the best part of 40+ years when Optimus took over the brand Svea from Max Sievert. The Svea brand has been around since the 1890's, not this model & they were a good 20 years behind most of their contempoary brands in introducing a model of this style. Ironically it was their late to the party model that lasted & became the cult classic. The Svea brand, like Optimus & Primus included a wide range of brass stoves for both the domestic & outdoor market.
