EmberLit Stainless Steel Survival Gear Backpack Camp Stove

This is the ORIGINAL Emberlit Stove. Designed and made here in the USA. It weighs about 11 and a half ounces (~320 g) and is constructed of rugged 304 stainless steel.

Twig stoves have been around for a long time and can be made from simple soup cans. The Emberlit stove is a refinement of those old can stoves. Not only does it pack flat for storage, the Emberlit Stove is impervious to corrosion and is remarkably strong. It will hold the weight of any pot or pan that will sit securely without wobble.

Like everything we make here at Merkwares, this wood burning stove comes with a forever happiness guarantee because you are never going to wear it out. With use, the individual panels that make up the Emberlit may take on a slight warp. This is normal and doesn’t affect the assembly or durability of the stove.


  • 304 Stainless Steel
  • ~ 11.3 oz/ 320g
  • 5.5" x 5.5" x 6"
  • Comes with Crossbars and Case

Bushcraft #2 Sport Utility Ax Council Tool

2 lb. Hudson Bay Axe head outfitted with an 18″ curved hickory handle. One-handed camp axe. Used for light splitting, chopping, driving tent pegs, etc. The pattern is thought to have originated from “Biscayan” in Northern Spain, near France. French traders used this hand axe as a trade tool in their dealings with Native Americans for fur and other commodities in the Hudson Bay area, St. Lawrence River, and other trade routes.

Forged tool steel head. Made in USA.

  • Hand sharpened, tapered bit for cutting and light splitting.
  • ANSI Standards call for bit hardness of Rc 45-60, at least ½ inch back from the cutting edge. Council Tool internal standards call for tempered bit hardness of Rc 48-55 and we target 1-1/4 inches from the cutting edge. The poll and eye walls are not hardened and remain in the as forged condition.
  • Head coated with boiled Linseed Oil over the as forged finish.
  • 18″ and 28" curved American hickory handle. Eye section is dried to below 10% moisture content to minimize shrinkage and help prevent loosening.  Hafted high and proud.
  • Axe head is hydraulically seated onto handle and secured with a traditional double wedge system.
  • The interior detail of the eye is tapered and allows for a strong mechanical bond. Approximately 1/4″ of overall length of the handle is removed during assembly.
