A manufacturing glitch has given rise to a batch of MKIIt Wild Woodgas Stoves that are just 6mm taller than the correct height. The base component is 72mm rather than 66mm, and weighs a few more grams. When nested, the stove will not fit into the 775ml MSR pot. This is literally the only impact of this manufacturing error. The stove will nest neatly inside the Zebra 14cm pot.
Performance, durability and stability are unchanged. The stoves are brand new, branded with a unique serial number, and beautifully packaged as normal.
PACKAGING NOTE: to keep costs down these are packed in plain boxes with a Budget Stove instruction booklet (instead of the normal MKIIt printed packaging and booklet).
We pride ourselves in top-quality, perfectly accurate described products, so as these are not up to the mark, we’re selling these at half price. MKIIt stoves normally retail at £50.
Back to the product listing…
This woodgas stove is at the cutting edge of wood-fuelled stove design. It features a unique stronger and more versatile pot support design. We listened to feedback from the international community of users, and redesigned the pot top so any size of pot can now be used with the stove even a mug. The new design also avoids the need for weld points, and is more robust for heavier loads.

The Wild Woodgas Stove MKIIt
The Wild Woodgas Stove is exceptionally efficient and versatile. Like most woodgas stoves it is designed to burn wood more cleanly than any open fire due to its secondary burn. This means more heat and less soot from a few twigs. It will also burn solid fuels (like hexamine) or meths in a Trangia-style burner. The stove packs down small for compact packing, with space inside for fuel & firelighting gear.
Wood-gas stoves create conditions where ‘primary air’ partially combusts wood gas, then inject pre-heated ‘secondary air’ into the top of the combustion chamber to mix with the remaining smoke, resulting in a very hot, clean burn and quick and easy lighting. They produce less carbon monoxide and particulates than open fires, and even rocket stoves. The images show the hot wood gases meeting the pre-heated air, appearing as jets of yellow flame.
This is a ‘passive-flow’ woodgas stove, meaning the secondary air holes are powered by convection rather than batteries and a fan – using the principle that hot air rises. So not only will you never run out of fuel for as long as you can find a few twigs; you’ll also never run out of battery power!
What Wild Stoves think
We love the ingenuity of this stove. The natural draft is effective, the stove burns clean and intensely and it packs down neatly and easily. Best of all its slightly wider base provides an exceptionally steady cooking support for anything from a survival billycan to a ‘family’ pot or kettle. Highly recommended.
