Review of Windy Smithy Henry stove

Loving my Henry

Jim Eades 11 years ago

I almost bought a second-hand Jotul 602 when I saw the Windy Smithy website and instantly fell in love with John Snow's work. After reading tons of reviews I took the plunge and went to meet with John and pick up a burner.

John was really helpful and I ended up buying a Henry stove.

I have to say that not only does it look the bee's knee's but it is an absolute joy to use!

It lights in seconds, heats my truck up in minutes and stays alight like I have a ghost keeping it stoked for me at night.

I love my Henry, it's the best and I also get to support a local craftsman who also happens to be a really nice guy.

Stove expert replied: Top marks all round and one very happy customer!
