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.

Honey Stove Ti
Monday, 16 June 2014  | 

Decided to try something different from my usual Trangia so bought this to use with a Hi-Gear cookset. The pan has a heat exchanger on the base, comes with a lid to use as a mug and fits inside the hexagon form of the stove when supported on 3 thin wire pegs (homemade from rc control rods!). I'd hoped to use the stove with wood when staying in a bothy last weekend but it was easier to use the meths that I'd carried (in a Trangia burner). The water boiled in no time and the rest of the bothy were impressed!
The next day I cooked lunch on top of a Munro and the stove worked well in the wind.
Very happy with the purchase and looking forward to cooking over wood.

Honey Stove Ti - Tianium
Tuesday, 11 March 2014  | 

Fast efficient delivery as always. Skittles a nice touch. Used the stove as soon as the weekend arrived, first with meths and then wood and works a treat. Looks delicate on first viewing but certainly isn't and performed well outside with a strong breeze. No problems cleaning it afterwards. The bag it comes in is fairly light and very well made. Can't wait to use it on a forthcoming backpacking trip. One reviewer on another site had suggested using the Tefal One Egg Wonder non-stick pan and I can confirm it fits perfectly into the top cooking a perfect fried egg!

Brilliant stove.
Very easy to put together.
Don't believe a few of the forum reviews saying it's fiddley to put together.
It's not, my 8 year old put it together straight away without looking at the instructions.
Nice and cosy to sit around as well at camp.
A must buy.

The ONE to own!
Tuesday, 19 November 2013  | 

Well, what more can I say about this amazing stove that others haven't? Quite simply it's brilliant!
After reading and watching reviews I just had to have one not only for its lightness but also because you can pretty much find fuel anywhere.
I had to try it as soon as I got home, so off out to the woods in the dark and blowing a hooley. I managed to find a handful of dry dead wood and set the stove alight.
I was very impressed by its performance, boiled 500 ml of water in roughly 5 mins. Not bad!
Spot on customer service too.
I would highly recommend backpacking light to everyone.

Simply the best stove I have ever owned
Thursday, 29 August 2013  | 

Firstly I have to comment on the amazing service. I never thought I'd experience a company who's service could rival that of Heinnie Haynes (my favourite store) but Backpacking Light matched and beat them hands down. Great site, fast delivery and even a call the next day to make sure I was happy. My new have store

OK now the stove, as the title says it is easily the best stove I have ever owned and I've had a few. Extremely light, very strong and quick and easy to construct into whatever configuration you need. Simple, brilliant and a first class example of great British engineering.

Previously I have only used solid fuel stoves once we've stopped for the night as they are not normally practical for a brew stop. In Winter I don't bother as I don't need the extra weight as I'm already carrying gas etc. Well thats no longer the case, at the weekend we stopped, a quick set up, small fire in, brew on and ready in less than 15 minutes (it was dry and no wind), the TI is so quick to cool down it was back in my pack 10 minutes after the flames were out.

Now it may not replace my Jetboil in the cold and wet Winter months but at 160g it will always be in my pack and I'll never have the 'wish we had a real fire' blues again.

PS - When I saw the quality of the stove I instantly ordered the TI expansion kit.

Incredible stove & service
Friday, 12 July 2013  | 

Ordered it on a Friday and it showed up by mid-day Monday in the Southeastern US! Have just used it twice but cooked two meals, heated tea water with two dead sticks that were hanging in an oak tree. Neither was bigger at the base than my index finger. Really efficient. Only took 45 seconds to slip together the first time and less the second. Fascinating to be able to set it up in different configurations.
