Boasting a generous 12oz. capacity, the Lore is 50% larger than your standard Kuksa. Oh, and being crafted from a solid chunk of hardwood doesn't hurt either. Drinking from a hand-carved wooden vessel may be considered a luxury to some... though, we'd consider the Lore 12 an absolute essential.
Handcrafted from 100% natural hardwood
Includes 4mm utility rope cordage
Capacity: 355ml (approx. 12 fl. oz.)
Sealed w/ food-grade, BPA-free finish.
Weight: approx. 5-7 oz.
These guidelines are to help ensure maximum longevity. Like any natural wood product (i.e. cutting boards, knife scales, etc.), if you treat your kuksa right, it’ll serve you well on many adventures!
1. HAND WASH and DRY BEFORE INITIAL USE. Just good practice for anything that's been handled and packaged.
2. OIL REGULARLY. Your hand’s natural oils help, too. Dry wood has a propensity to crack and split over time, so keep it conditioned. Remember, dish soaps strip these oils.
3. NO EXTREME TEMPS. Including microwaved, dishwasher, and boiling liquids. Can you use your cup for hot coffee or tea? Absolutely! Just let the boiling liquid sit a few minutes before pouring. High temperatures can potentially fatigue the wood, and eventually, over time, cause it to crack.
Just look and see how comfortable I’ve gotten with my cup.....thank.....I do like it!
I don't have a camera or cellphone, like peace and quiet and drink my morning coffee in the yard.
Absolutely beautiful Kuksa! What sold me on this one was it’s size. I have a smaller one from Norway and love it, but it is pretty small. This Lore will be great for a big cup of coffee or tea and is big enough for foraging berries etc too! Thanks!
Beautifully crafted and just what I wanted and at a great price. Thank you
My new favorite coffee cup. Great feel. Superb craftsmanship. There may be many like it, but this one is mine.
i like the product very much
Absolutely love the cup..from the feel in my hand to something build with such a simple but classic style... I loved it so much I bought two...just in hopes that some outing may be a new beginning....and who knows...it could start with a cup of coffee!
I hoping for this very long time. Finally I got what I want!
Backpacking in the high Sierras
I got both cups (small and big one) because I could not pick a favorite. And I love them both. I use the small one for coffee and the big one for soup and pasta. Dursten is an amazing brand and has a great customer service! 10/10 would buy again.
It (the cup) had an enjoyable time hiking with me through the Emigrant Wilderness last month. Was working on a getting a good patina on it with wine, coffee and tea! Strapped it to the outside of my pack and got lots of compliments!
Beautifully made. Love it!
Their is something special about the wilderness. We go into it to connect with nature. The Lore 12 accomplishes that connection with beautiful simplicity. Smooth to the touch and light weight. It's a perfect addition to my outdoor adventures that bridges the gap between the modern world and the WILD!
It’s exactly what I expected. Love it!
I love this thing! The wood is high quality and seems like it will last a long time. The wood was super smooth and didn’t have any ruff edges. I look forward to using it again and again.
I’m giving this to my nephew. I sure he will love it too. Oh well I’ll have to wait for my nephew to show it off to get my $5 off.
Exactly as advertised. Great quality and looks great. This will be a regular camping favorite.
Telling my friends about it!
I've been getting more and more into 'Bushcrafting' and have been intrigued by the notion of a Kuksa and wanted to try one out. Eventually I'll find the time to make my own possibly, but I don't have the time to do so right now, so for the very affordable price, I got a Lore/12 and am quite happy with it. Have only had it a week or so I've only had the chance to use it around one evening fire out back rather than in the deep green, it worked very well.
Love the rustic aesthetic and how easy it is to care for. Great for cold beverages; hot coffee too just drink it quickly if you enjoy your java warm. My only wish is that the 12 oz hand the handle of the six oz version. The ladle handle is a little too small even for my diminutive paws.
I used my cup first time made a pot of coffee on a fishing trip this weekend enjoyed the fact my coffee stayed hot and cup was cool to the touch
Great, light-weight Kuksa. Holds plenty of grog.
Was exactly what I was looking for!
Great addition to our kitchen, both indoor and outdoor. Nice feel and finish. We use them for coffee and find the work well with no residual taste from the wood finish. The size is perfect.

Many Thanks Dursten
Happy Trails From The Maritimes In Canada
Love the bowl, but it is splitting, a week into use. Will have to get a replacement.
I ordered 2 of the Lore 12 oz Kuksa's. The first one worked like a champ and fits into our camper ensemble perfectly. The second on sprung a leak at a natural knot. I contact Dursten, and Amanda with customer service promptly sent out a replacement. I received it before the weekend, and it too works like a champ. They are cool items, and have great customer service. Highly recommend!

Very Fast delivery. Absolutely great communication. Beautiful kuksa. All TOP and Nr. 1 :)
Great craftsmanship. It’s what I expected and more !
Love my Lore12 Kuksa❤️❤️❤️❤️
Thank u guys for the fast shipping ( to Germany...) and for this fantastic cup
I really like the 12 oz. lore. It is the perfect size to use as a cup or a small bowl. Easy to hold. Very nicely hand crafted. I replaced the cord with a leather piece because I think it goes better with the natural look of it. Overall very happy with it.
The is a great product. I want a bigger version one at least 16 oz the one improvement would be to round the top of the cup as it feels a little sharp.
Was just what i hoped.. very pleased
Love the larger capacity!! Made the cool mornings on Priest Lake perfect with some hot coffee recently. Big fan, keep up the good work!!
It is a lovely cup
I have been looking for one 12 ounces
I thought I would need to make my own, but then was watching uTube Mark Young and he reviewed this.
It is very nicely made of hardwood it is light and I cannot wait to use it on my next hike.
It’s the right size for a real drinking cup. All otl the others are too small, only 6/8 ounces. This one does the job and is well made. I’m very happy with this traditional Kuksa.
This was really great " made beef stew" it was Totally worth it" camp fire Coffee tasted even better" will cherish this forever!
I love it awesome size! Yall did a great job!
Love this cup! Well crafted and has no chemical smell like other cups of this type.
Fun product and very practical...Lots of questions from friends!!
I love my Lore 12 Kuksa! I take it EVERWHERE—it’s indestructible and so easy to clean. Plus it holds every hot or cold liquid imaginable. And I can tie it into my pack, too. ♥️ Highly recommend!
Love the Kuska in the larger volume but prefer the style handles on the smaller version.
ois super. genauso cool, wie ich hoffte.
It’s cup cup it’s a bowl it’s perfect addition to my kit
Great cup!! Thanks for making a larger one. Now you need a 20oz!!
Gave as a gift to a groomsmen
Nice quality and I really like the larger size... Great shipping time
Have cup, will travel. Love using this beautiful mug instead of paper cups. Holds heat well & is easy to clean. I rub it with a little coconut oil after washing to keep from drying out.
I love my Kuksa!!! I’ve used it many times and love the size! It’s perfect for coffee but also just the right size for my oatmeal breakfasts while in the backcountry!!! Thank you for making the perfect backpacking cup!!!
I bought two of these to take camping. Used it last weekend and LOVE IT.
Great kuksa. I use it everyday for tea, coffee, and sometimes food. It's the perfect size.
Used my Kuksa on a recent backpacking trip in the Gila Wilderness, it was my drinking vessel for the trip! It will be on all my trips from now on! Love it!
It is an awesome cup and very well made! I love it!!
Beautiful Kuksa, can't wait to get it out to the woods!
My Cup runneth over, Proud to own two :heart_eyes:
Beautiful wooden cup! Gorgeous work! Well worth buying, I would gladly pay for another!
I’m extremely happy with my cup. Wish I had found it years ago.
I am very impressed with the workmanship. Beutiful.
Great cup, Great customer Service
My Lore is wonderful. I use it daily for coffee and then for water. The kuksa is a great conversation starter and just looks and feels great. Had a small crack in mine and Dursten was quick to respond by sending a new one right away.
Simply the best
I have both your 8 ounce and 12 ounce Kuksas. Such wonderful quality, they are both a joy to use. Please make more products! Bowls, utensils, etc...
Light weight and beautifully crafted. Can't wait to test it out in the bush.
Love my wood mug/bowl
The Lore 12 is perfect, it accompanies short backpacking trips well, and it is useful. I'll be using in on many flyfishing trips.
Product was as described. Love it. Have only used for water but ready to take on camping trip.
Very Nice Cup
Craftsmanship is excellent and cup fits nicely in my hand. Like that it sets flat on ground, table or log. 12 oz size is added plus. Add a 8 oz line on inside and you can use it for measuring ingredients, when your cooking.
Holds a Proper Size Coffee
I have a few wooden cups but this one holds more and very well made. Would even like to see a bigger one but this one is attached permanently to my backpack.
