Small, but fierce! The new 3" Folding Firebox Nano is the most versatile & powerful wood-burning / multi-fuel camp stove in its class.

I NEED YOUR HELP - I'm looking to raise $8,200 so I can go to full production with this amazing new ultra-light stove. 

The 3″ Folding Firebox Nano (patent pending) is the coolest backpacking stove you've ever seen. At less than 6 ounces, the Firebox Nano is only 3″ wide and folds down to a ridiculously thin .25″. With its proprietary cross-feed fuel delivery system, this new little camp and hiking stove can easily bring 2 cups of water to a boil in under 5 minutes. Even with all this power, the Firebox Nano is one of the smallest wood-burning and multi-fuel stoves on the market. Like its big brother, the Folding Firebox Nano is hinged and requires absolutely no assembly.

Highlights

  • Multi-fuel versatility
  • No assembly, hinged construction
  • Perfect for the Trangia Spirit Burner
  • Proprietary cross-feed fuel delivery system
  • Adjusts to fit small cups or large pans
  • Fits in your shirt pocket
  • Made of Stainless Steel
  • Engineered and Made in the USA

Dimensions

  • Width:   3.0″ (8 cm)
  • Height:   4.75″ (12 cm)
  • Folded Thickness:   0.25″ (.635 cm)
  • Weight:   5.6 ounces (158.75 grams)

Production Plan

Over the past three years, I have used the same great manufacturing partner right here in Utah to produce my stove designs. My new Folding Firebox Nano will be the third stove I have taken to market. I've learned a lot about the manufacturing process with my first two stoves and, with your help, am hoping to speed up the process on the new Nano. Here is what I have complete so far –

  • Create and test a prototype of the initial concept
  • Create production prototype drawings and programming
  • Gather supplier quotes and determine pricing viability
  • Create a pre-production prototype
  • Thoroughly test the pre-production prototype
  • Make any necessary adjustments to design and materials
  • Finalize the production drawings and programming
  • Make and test a production prototype
  • Finalize suppliers and production costs

Before I can ship the new Nano, I need to raise money to finalize these last four steps (this is why I need your help) –

  • Order the necessary custom production tooling
  • Buy the raw materials and complete a small quantity run to test the tooling
  • Fine-tune the final production programming and equipment
  • Go to full production

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We're the manufacturers of the original Folding Firebox Campfire Stove. Our stoves are known for the elegant engineering and quality construction. Of course, as with the original 5" Folding Firebox stove, the 3" Folding Firebox Nano has been engineered in the USA and will be manufactured right here at our local US facility. If you know me, you know that I'm a freak about quality control. You can trust that every one of our new Folding Firebox Nano stoves will come with the same 100% satisfaction guarantee that we have always offered. If you are unhappy with your product for any reason, we'll refund your money. No questions asked!

FAQ

  • In keeping with the ultra-light concept, I decided not to include an ash pan as a standard component of the Nano. However, I did add a light-weight carbon felt sheet to our website. It can be used as a ground protector and also as a wind screen or hot pad. Here's a link to it on my website -
