Hi
I came across the stove and originally thought it was a Jotul 118. I had a Jotul in the past and loved that stove. After doing some research I see this may be a knock off? I don’t see any Jotul markings on it. But looks exactly like a 118. There is a tag on the back of the stove but impossible to read. Also after researching I cannot find any stoves with similar art on the sides.
Any identification information would be much appreciated.

Looks the size and shape of a 118 but has major differences. 1) the scene on the side isn't the same. 2) Jotul has its name in big letters on the door. 3) Jotul has the Danish saying on the top front piece. 4) My 118 doesn't have a tag on the back.

Doesn't look like a bad stove from the pix. I'd open her up, check the innards, heat shields, baffle etc, dust it off and inspect every outside inch for a name including the bottom. 118's are heavy too. Might turn out to be a decent shop stove anyway.

Thanks for the info. Looks like a fairly solid stove. Anyone have an idea of the make or model, possibly Scandia?

Probably Scandia. Does it say made in Taiwan anywhere in the castings?
