I'll play, my dream stove would be 18" long, about 8 inches wide and around 14 inches tall( fire box that is) and would be made of Titanium, could have a small window but it add weight and maintenance so I'm not sold on the idea... could have a baffle but would need to be totally and easily removable. The door would need to be as large a possible for ease of loading wood and as air tight as possible! The chimney flange would be on the outside so again you don't fight when loading that last piece of wood in!! Double bottom, snow legs....

ANDN---When you build that stove, make 2, as I'm putting my order in for one.

Hahaha, don't hold your breath my friend. I do have a few ideas for stoves, but I really doubt I have the knowledge or ability to make such a stove. But I didi share my ideas with stove builders like Kni-co, four dog and the " muskrat" brothers.... None of them were interested in making them... That said the Brothers had one with the similar dimensions, I think they called it the cabover or something like that.

...add this little Ti stove to the short list of those wood burners that have a small glass window!  This is a little Korean made Ti stove that breaks down. 

I have been looking for a breakdown or folding stove for my next planned Alaska/Yukon fall trip, this year or the year after.  What appeals to me is that it's small enough to go in a canoe or small paddle raft, which is one of our needs.   This one might actually fit into our double kayak!
Downsides are costs, though it's not unreasonable for Ti.  I like the little glass window, but it's a tiny stove indeed and with the numerous bits and pieces, surely a bag of fastener spares would be needed on any trip, short or long.   
For any of our shelter applications, I would have to rig up an angled piece of flue, somehow...I think heat output for our pre-wintertime needs would be fine.  And a homemade leg float would be easy enough to craft in camp.

Have heard some encouraging things about the selling dealer, but have no experience yet with a fold down stove or fold down Ti or this brand.   

I am curious to see what other stove people think about this unit?  And/or my need and fix for an angled pipe for my shelters or breakdown issues with other stoves, sheetmetal, stainless or Ti...?

Nice stove, Southcove.

Windows are pretty and all that but, unless you burn hot, they get black in a hurry.

Looking at the dimensions, it seems pretty small.

I picked up a used one of the Norwegian stainless stoves cheap and haven't really had a chance to test it, but the firebox is small, and I am wondering how much heat it will really put out. Wood was so short it was hard to light. Part of the problem is it has a built in oven, and the oven takes up a good bit of the firebox. I am not expecting much heat without constant stoking.

Look at the stoves that Seek Outside has. For the same money, I think you can get a bigger stove.
