Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

ok im apparently a dope. let me preface this by saying I don't own a coal poker. anyway I was using the coal shovel to break up the bridgeing and bad ash deposit in the back of the stove that was clogging up the grate and leading to a terrible half burn. when I pulled the shovel out it was glowing bright red and folded perfectly in half back on itself. (hmmmm maybe if I hammer it and keep repeating the process I can make a folded steel shovel like they do with the japanese katana swords)
