Swedish Canteens - New Fuel Bottles
I have been looking for a good solution to my fuel bottle problem for my two Optimus stoves for quite some time......... I finally found the solution! I found a pair of Swedish Army surplus metal canteens for about 8 bucks each. They are solid aluminum flasks with aluminum screw caps, leather belt hangers with metal clips and wool covers. Perfect!
I painted the caps red and made two metal tags stamped with the fuel type and attached them to the belt hangers. Now all I have to do is fill them.
The perfect thing is that the canteen-fuel bottles are vintage looking, and Swedish. Both of the Optimus stoves are vintage Swedish as well............. the perfect match.
