for example, "Handblechdrücken" (metal stamping by hand), a craft that had almost died out, and was rediscovered by Huss. This manufacturing technology can be found in several of Jürgen Huss's products such as the traditional German-style candlestick insert or the iron skillet lid of the "Tisch-Hussl", a cylindrical iron table stove.
Entrepreneur Jürgen Huss was so inspired by the I K revival project that he supported it right away. Consequently, the Association for the Advancement of Saxon Narrow Gauge Railways (VSSB) – the initiator of the project of rebuilding a narrow gauge railway locomotive – presented a founder's share in bronze to Jürgen Huss. A high-quality Huss I K No. 54 model steam locomotive (in 1:32 scale) built from sheet metal was developed. It is a very pretty decorative and functional object. Whether it is used for burning incense cones or aromatic natural resins and oils, or for keeping a teapot warm, the lovely steam locomotive is decorative all year round.
The Fichtelberg Railway (Fichtelbergbahn) runs daily from Cranzahl through the village of Neudorf to the ski resort of Oberwiesenthal in the Ore Mountains. Heavy clouds of steam with their typical smell come out of the chimneys of the engines, a technological spectacle that Jürgen Huss can watch and smell every day. He thus had the idea of creating an all-new incense cone fragrance: the original steam engine fragrance made for his miniature steam locomotive.
