Interestingly, in Japan, the Muka is known as the SOD-371 whereas the stove is known as the OD-1NP in the United States. "Sod" has negative connotations in British English, so perhaps Soto decided to drop the "S" from their designator's prefix. I have no idea why they changed the number of the stove.
COLD WEATHER ADVISORY
I do have one fairly significant concern about the stove. The directions say that the stove should not be used in temperatures below -4F/-20C due to possible fuel leakage issues. If you like to do winter backpacking or mountaineering, consider carefully what temperatures you may be faced with before you decide to use a Muka.
Overall, the Soto Muka is a very nice stove, but do make sure to stay within its recommended temperature range.
