The Hive (Expansion Kit) TitaniumThe Hive (Expansion Kit) Titanium

The ultimate in 100% British designed and manufactured wood burning and multi-fuel Titanium stoves.

Manufactured from .5mm Grade 2 Titanium sheet, which is 29% thinner than the .7mm Stainless Steel model.

This also makes it 55% lighter weighing in at a total of 161g. (Standard model 362g)

Although the Titanium is obviously thinner and has a more delicate feel to the touch, it is one of the most technical, tough and durable materials available today. Due to the thickness, parts may flex with ease, however realinging the shape is simple and will not effect the longevity or strength of the product.

The stove has no moving parts. Nothing to break down or fail. Once clipped together it forms the same sturdy cooking platform as the standard  model.

Please note, there is a natural slight warp to the flat .5mm Titanium material. Even under prolonged high heat, this warp is minor and does not effect the fantastic performance or ability to disassemble and reassemble the stove.

This is not a toy and should only be used by those with experience in using lightweight technical outdoor materials.

The following information is relevant to both models;

Since the launch in 2008, The Honey Stove has grown in popularity in all areas of the outdoor community. 

Users have enthused over the flexibility and practically of the 100% British design and manufacture, sharing the news of the discovery with other outdoor enthusiasts.

Hikers, backpackers, bushcrafters, kayakers, cyclists, riders and travellers around the globe have enjoyed the simplicity of the design, combined with the reliable functionality, which results in cooking over a stove which is virtually carbon neutral.



There’s no escaping the fact. This style of cooking will transport you back to a simpler time, and increase yours pleasures when living outdoors. 

Time to appreciate your surroundings and your companions more. Time which is never wasted.

I wanted to design a stove which would be unique. No moving parts, just a simple solid reliable construction, which when linked together would provide maximum strength either in the square or hexagonal configuration.



A true multi fuel stove which cooks efficiently with virtually any size or shape of cook pot, used by the independent traveller around the world.

One which will burn organic matter, esbit/hexamine tablets, night light candles, ANY make of meths (denatured alcohol) stove, Greenheat Fuel Cells and even the standard Trangia gas burner, or other similar variations.



Flexibility is the key to the design concept. Your cooking vessel can be placed on top, or if less than 12cm diameter, inside the rim of the stove. 

For example, by placing a simple heat source in the base of the Hexagonal setting, the Stainless Steel will reflect heat inwards and act as a reliable windshield. 

By simply sliding two 3mm pegs through the horizontal holes in the mid points, your pot (less than 12cm dia) will be lowered and supported inside the perimeter walls, and therefore trap more of the generated heat, reducing the time taken to boil. 



Your Honey Stove package consists of 5 x side panels, a fire door, a base plate, a Trangia Burner support, a small square plate and a top mesh grill. The base plate is interchangeable in any of the five different side slots.



There are no hard and fast rules, as to which slot you use, or which way is up!  It is entirely up to you and your needs at that particular cooking moment! 

Please note: You do NOT need to use ALL of the parts, ALL of the time!



Please note: It is designed to be a tight fit the first few times you assemble the stove. This will quickly become easier with use.



Honey Stove Ti - Reviews Andy Howell - Must be this way


 

Assembling the square configuration



This is the most compact stove setting, and it may be all a ‘lightweight’ backpacker, cyclist, bushcrafter or kayaker will ever need.

Option 1: Take a side panel with the prongs facing upwards, and slide down on each side two further panels. If you are burning organic matter, place the square plate in either of the two lowest slots, then slide the door on ‘upwards’. This will allow you slide fuel in through the door slot.

Option 2: If you are using a coke can stove, esbit/hexamine tablet or Greenheat place the square plate in the mid slot and then slide on the door. This allows easy lighting of the tablets and better air flow.



Option 3: However you may wish to make the fire completely enclosed. Therefore instead of sliding on the door, use another side panel. This will enclose the fire completely.



Option 4: You may also prefer to use the standard Trangia Burner. The slots in the side panels are designed to hold the rim of the burner securely. 

Therefore, slot the rim into the mid slot of the three panels and then slide the door into place. 
This slot provides the optimum burner to pot height, to achieve maximum heat performance. 

NB: You are also still able to access the simmering ring through the door.




Assembling the hexagonal configuration



To burn organic matter/charcoal BBQ briquettes



Option 1: Take a side panel and hold it with the prongs facing downwards. Slide on two other side panels either side and place the base plate in either of the bottom two slots (air flow). 

Make sure the rear of the base plate sits in the central panel slot. 

Slide on a fourth and fifth panel on alternate sides, and then while holding those two panels between your thumb and forefinger, ease the fire door into place.

NB: As the metal is freshly laser cut, this will be a tight fit initially, so may require positive, but not excessive force. This will quickly become easier.

For pots smaller than 12cm, slide two 3mm pegs through the slots at a height of your choice. 

Or cook directly on the grill placed on top of the final assembly.




To burn esbit/hexamine tablet



Option 2: Assemble as above, but raise the base plate to the second slot. 

For pots smaller than 12cm, slide in two 3mm pegs through the slots at a height of your choice to make the most of the heat generated. Or cook directly on the grill placed on top of the final assembly.




To use a Trangia Burner



Option 3: Assemble as above with the base plate in either of the two lowest slots. Prior to fitting the door, slide in the Trangia plate into two opposing mid slots. Then ease the fire door into place. 

If your pot is greater then 12cm, place it on top of the stove.



If your pot is less than 12cm slide in two 3mm pegs through two upper holes as support. Or use the grill on top of the assembly as support. 

However, for maximum wind protection, you have the option to assemble the stove with the Trangia plate lower down, and therefore the base of the pot is enclosed within the perimeter of the stove for maximum wind protection.

To use Trangia Gas or other Trangia Fitting Multifuel Convertor

Option 4: Assemble as above but start with the prongs facing upwards on the first panel, so the door fits on last with the wider section at the top of the stove. This allows the fuel line to exit the unit without obstruction.
Which wood to burn? They use this old woodman's poem ….

Logs to burn! Logs to burn!
Logs to save the coal a turn!
Here's a word to make you wise
When you hear the woodman's cries.

Beechwood fire burn bright and clear;
Hornbeam blazes too,
If logs are kept a year
And seasoned through and through.

Oak logs will warm you well
If they're old and dry,
Larch logs of pinewood smell
But the sparks will fly.

Pine is good and so is yew
For warmth through winter days
But poplar and willow, too
Take long to dry and blaze.

Birch logs will burn too fast,
Alder scarce at all.
Chestnut logs are good to last
If cut in the fall.

Holly logs will burn like wax,
You should burn them green,
Elm logs like smoldering flax,
No flame is seen.

Pear logs and apple logs,
They will scent your room.
Cherry logs across the dogs
Smell like flowers in bloom.

But ash logs, all smooth and grey,
Burn them green or old,
Buy up all that come your way,
They're worth their weight in gold.


Hard woods for roasting
Apple, Ash, Beech, Birch, Sweet Chestnut, Hazel, Holly, Hornbeam, Larch, Oak and Willow.

Soft woods for boiling
Alder, Aspen, cedar, Hawthorn, Horse chestnut, Lime, Pine, Poplar, Spruce, Sycamore.

Slow love
Tuesday, 5 April 2016  | 

This design is definitely an addition to the sum of human happiness, adding a new facet to lightweight disreputable sleeps. It has taken a while, but its now my first choice of stove , having accompanied me, for example, down the Wye(4 nights) and across the Lakes (also 4 nights) as my only stove. As well as on many overnights. There are times when you can anticipate a shortage of fuel, so I still revert to other stoves, but wild camping across the Lakes, bikepacking and bivvying down the Wye (sit on top, not really backpacking, I know). are not some of them. And it really does leave no trace, used carefully. FYI a 6 litre stick bag does tea/dinner/hot chocolate/breakfast coffee / morning coffee.) Useful o know if you like camping high, where there are not so many hedgerows.

Great camping stove
Tuesday, 15 March 2016  | 

Great product. Super lightweight! Comes in a flatpack case that feels really durable.

It's a little bit small for cooking if you're using wood since you need to build a little bit of a fire to get enough heat to boil water in a reasonable amount of time. Together with the hive expansion it's just right though, If you are using liquid fuel it's perfect by itself.

A great camping stove that takes up little to no room or weight in your backpack!

Honey Stove - best answer
Monday, 25 January 2016  | 

So far the best answer to my needs. Of the multi fuel stoves I have the Honey Stove is way way the lightest and the most versatile. With no hinges it packs down so thin you don't know it is there and did I mention how light it is! 160 odd grams (187 with case) - my next best, that is actually realistically viable for getting lit and cooking on dependably is 1225gm! It is easy to light a fire using wood and has plenty of air flow. Straight out of the packet and into the garden I easily got it going and made a brew. I found other stoves I have, with a more enclosed burn area, take a lot, lot more to get them going. But with this a little kindling (shavings/father stick, cotton ball or a piece of lighting paper, bought here at same time as stove, and it will take a fire with a few dry twigs and pared down bits of wood. Once going, green wood also seemed to burn fine. Stability is fine and I was not sure about the simple mesh grill, but I like it now and can see how it is in fact a much better proposition that the original lock in place version. The current stove incarnation lends itself to being very diverse. One thing that sold it to me was the fact that I can not only use a Trangia burner in it or a titanium Evernew burner (which I like as having jet holes lower down can in fact be used on its own as a light weight stand alone, where the trangia burner would be snuffed out by a pot) I can also use my Trangia GAS burner, so this stove can be set up for family use on an everyday camp site. Along with the option to up size with the hive pack, this makes the stove usable for solo wild camps and family breaks cooking on just about all fuels and with all pot types. Customer service is excellent and I was reassured that I would be looked after should I ever be in need of spares for my stove. I was so impressed with the stove that It instantly dawned on me that this stove would get a lot of use over a long time. The stove can not only be up sized but also used as a four sided pocket stove for ultra light outings, but it is so compact when packed that you may as well tale the lot, but the option is there and it is a worth while option to have. You can even make a lantern out of the 4 sided stove and a tea light (make a heat reflector out of some tin foil to line the inside if you like). On top of all of this the stove is FUN, I actually look forward to getting it out and having a play, I mean cooking tea. I am very glad of the statement that the stove is manufactured in the UK as opposed to another stove that is made in 'partnership' with a UK company - Hmmm read into that what you will. I bought the Titanium Honey Stove and it is great - Also there is a stainless steel version and you just can not go wrong. Top marks to the Honey Stove.

Excellent service and product
Saturday, 19 December 2015  | 

I bought this item to use with my triad stove and for cooking with wood. Didn't have a chance to use it in anger until now.
Very impressed with it, maybe a bit fiddly with cold hands but not horrendous by any means. Works great for me in both wood burner and support/windshield formats. Light enough I could forget it's packed, sits in my day bag permanently. Even useful at work as I can brew up out and about, corrosion resistant, useful as I'm around salt water a lot.

Great piece of kit.

Impressive stove and perfect service
Wednesday, 19 August 2015  | 

First impression after unboxing is very convincing. The stove is ultra light weight and conveniently packed in a slim (and hopefully durable) pouch. We immediatley sat down and started experimenting with assembling the stove, which turned out to be both, fun and easy. The parts fit perfectly together and no bending or misshape is in the way. After some thought I also found out how to ideally place the Trangia gas burner into the hexagonal stove (it doesn't fit in the square stove setting).
Now I am looking forward to testdrive the stove with both, gas and wood. It's raining today, so I should perhaps go out and give it a try.
The service and delivery as well as communcation were excellent too. Thank you!

Great idea made even better!
Monday, 27 July 2015  | 

I've used a s/s Honey Stove for years & love it. Ti version is much lighter, and actually easier to assemble. I tend to use wood as fuel, fuel for free, what's not to love. A great little stove got even better.

go titanium
Sunday, 28 June 2015  | 

I dont usually write reviews but having owned my honey ti for what seems like forever i truly love it and i mean A LOT. I can keep it going for hours using the same amount of wood a campfire would for minutes. Just bought the ti expansion kit was pondering buying the steel kit to keep costs down but that would be unforgivable in the long term (thats what overdrafts are for right?) Have trangia x 2, msr xgk, jetboil, pocket rocket (cheapo go outdoors type) but this is my go to stove/campfire...........love it love it.
