With all the chores complete for the day and my son working on his homework I had a brief period of time to myself to undertake some essential bushcraft knife maintenance.

I recently spoke to Phil Hawkins of BushLife Essentials regarding his excellent Eco-Burner to ask how and why it worked so well. Phil had this to say: -

“The Eco Burner was inspired by an article about 3rd world country cooking inside huts. The design is also very similar to another very much smaller item that is fan assisted.  As I try my best to recycle all that I use to turn into something useful I was just stacking up a load of blasted, partly cut cylinders one day and suddenly saw the opportunity and the large Eco Burner design was born.

I have just collected my Eco-Burner from Phil at BushLife Essentials and I must say how pleased I am with both the stove and the excellent service. I’ve spoken to Phil several times and on our last meeting at the Weald Woodfair I commissioned him to make me an Eco-Burner with removable legs and brackets for kettle, billycans, frying pans, etc.
