The Ghillie Kettle has produced camping kettles for centuries and at Ghillie Kettle they're still handmade in the age old traditional way. All of their Anodized Kettles are Hard Anodized, the result being is that you get a thicker stronger coating which is about 2-4 times stronger than the normal anodizing process. It's about as close as you can get to titanium while still using a easily machineable aluminum. Boil water is seconds! It's simple, use twigs, fir cone and dry leaves to fuel!
