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 mil-spec 550 paracord
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.

I have my morning and evening coffee in this every day. I have the large one and really like it. Makes me feel great even when I can't get to the woods to have coffee.
A cup of tea on the river bank. Living the good life!
My cup is on point! It goes with me on EVERY adventure
Makes a great soup or oat meal bowl, love it!
Holds liquids perfectly
It’s a dream to drink a warm beverage from this beautiful mug. I enjoy it every day
This item is my go to portion control cup/bowl when it comes to breakfast/lunch/dinner. Love the fact that it's made of wood... So awesome, just rub it down with some flaxseed oil every so often and your good to go....
Cool looking very functional made for outdoor adventures !
Love this kuksa! Use it for water, coffee, beer, and even cereal. There is something really cool about having a wooden cup. Everybody at work loves it and even had a couple guys buy one just like it. I originally bought it for the nights we play table top games, but it gets used daily now!
This Wood Cup has a joy to raise.
I'm a partner who can spin age with me.
Love this cup! Perfect for any occasion and I always bring it to work. Highly recommended
Love it! Used at home for tea and scrambled eggs. Have not had a chance to use camping yet, will be a welcome addition to my gear. Will purchase another in the future.
I love this set soo much! It fits the perfect amount for a meal or a drink and the quality is amazing. I will definitely be buying more supplies from this company
Uberleben are LITERALLY the best!
Their products are amazing, and their customer service is on point.
I'm a customer for life!
love my carved wood cup from you guys will definitly buy more in future
...OK, so it look way-kewl on the bank of trout stream; but when it's winter in Wyoming you have to settle for the fly tying bench. I will admit to having a slew of kuksas, but none of them possess the heft and capacity of this beauty.
I like the design of the cup but I have some difficulty holding it in my adult male hand. I would suggest the handle is made longer to assist with holding the cup or the the area around the rim of the cup has some perpendicular hash marks that give the holder some additional friction surface to better grip the cup.
Have had both the Kuska and spoon for a while now. They are my favorite things to eat oatmeal in as well as to have a nice hot chocolate! Love it.
Great quality cup. My kids can even use with gloves on. Great winter camping cup or metal alternative. Very impressed with the quality.
Loving the quality and worksmanship of the new gear. Great job uberleben!
Love my Uberleben products. Can't wait to see what they will add next.
Great cup. Sturdy and nice grip.
A perfect gift!
Thank you for your craftsmanship!!
I’m loving the size of my Lore Kuksa. It’s deep enough for almost an entire can of soup. And works great with coffee and hot tea!!!
looks well crafted. will give as a gift so excited to hear how they like it when they see it
Absolute love this kuksa. It Ergonomically Fits extremely well within my hand

Love this combo. The Lore Kuksa is solid and beautifully finished. The Kanu Spoon is the perfect companion (ideal for my wife’s homemade granola) I’ve bought two of each so we can both have one when we go hiking :) 10/10
I got the baby momma the limited fire kit the kuska and the scanoe spoon for Christmas our son is only 9 weeks old rite now ! She says he's too little to take to the mountains yet♂️So we're waiting a little bit. Probably spring and I think I can sway her Thank you
Just used this over the weekend to start an alcohol stove. Worked beautifully. It's so nice to know I won't be needing matches anymore.
It was used as a Christmas Gift, everyone just loves it! Thank you
I use my kuksa every morning to enjoy my porridge!
Just a great sustainable product!!!
I originally purchased one Kuksa and one Kanu for my son for Christmas. Once they arrived, I purchased two more sets for my other two sons! I am just so impressed by the beauty, craftsmanship, and uniqueness of these products. I am dropping hints to all three of my boys for my upcoming birthday! Thanks so much for your beautiful work. The picture is of my son enjoying a hot drink in front of our fireplace. Cheers!
I love my new Kuksa, it’s New Years Eve, I am going to have a drink. The quality of a hand crafted kuksa, is like owning a Bentley, So nice, the cup fills good in my hands, can’t Waite till I take it on my next camping adventure, or trip to the kitchen. Get one you will love it!!
Just a great cup! The Kuksa is perfect for teas, soups, trail meals, etc. and paired with the Kanu spoon, Titanium cook stove Hexa Fire Starter and Tindar Wick, you have a very compact and time-honored combination of basic Bushcrafting (or whatever level of being in the outdoors) gear to use and enjoy. Uberleben is the best source for simple, high quality and back to basics equipment. I have been very pleased with each of their products. The more I use them, the better they look!
All first Class!
Earlier this year I purchased kuksas for both me and my wife - the 12 oz for me and the 8 oz for my wife. On a camping trip, my best friend admired mine, so I bought him the Lore as well as the Kanu Spoon as a Christmas gift. There's never a better review than to buy one for someone else.
As I wrote for an earlier review on your other variety of kuksa, I got this kind for myself first. I then decided to get the two-holed variety for my adult kids and their spouses for Christmas presents-- they loved them. But, I love the look of the one handled, smooth naturally polished wood exterior variety myself. I've used mine for everything from hot coffee and tea, to bourbon and wine. I make sure to immediately and carefully rinse it clean and wipe inside and out with a bit of olive oil. They're holding up great! No stains from red wine or stress from any hot liquids. My grandfather had an old kuska [it was dark and had to be a birch burl] that was handed down to him. It was always used when he savored his one/ once a week whiskey. I always wished I had managed to get that kuksa. But yours still give me the experience and are a well-priced, well-made substitute.
Thank you for making a quality product! Rose
Great! Best size, shape and plate!
...wishing I was in the woods. Sipping tea from the wood Kuksa brings me a little closer to the outdoors.
Great product- I bought 2- works fantastic camp side - measuring, eating, drinking- buy one!
pretty kewl easy to use
Will do a review after Christmas Day, as these are gifts.
Arrived fast and it's a good quality cup and a good size for a soup or cup of coffee...I put a coat of olive oil on it right away and let it sit for 24hrs then repeated that again... should last for a long time. A1
I haven’t had a chance to use all of new camping gear but I am in love with the quality! I will be buying all of their items!
We love it! Used for hot cocoa, cappuccino, yogurt and granola...☕
For my so, who has everything
I use my Kuska nearly every day for my morning coffee. I also like to use it for soups, chili, and will be trying it out with some tasty oatmeal very soon! I love the way the food takes on a more earthy tone coming out of the all wood Kuska. I would recommend the Kuska to all outdoorsmen/women who love the look and feel of wood and fine craftsmanship! Thanks Uberleben!
I really have enjoyed it and I’m looking for a large size to add to my kit
Perfect little bit of simplicity in my complicated life, makes morning coffee taste better
Great for backpacking into the wild !!
Just finished my first cup of coffee from the kuska.
Nicely made. I'm ready for the outdoors.
I love the old school Lore. I use it to drink water out of. The finish beautiful, with only a couple of dole places inside the bowl area that appears might not have been sealed up as good as the rest of the cup. Beautiful wood grain, and craftmanship. I did order the 12 oz. with the 2 hole handle after using the Lore for a while. The2 hole is easier to pick up and drink out of, but it can't compare to the sheer beauty of the Lore.
I love this wooden mug. It is my go-to for coffee and tea in the morning while van-living. I wax it with food grade wax and it’s holding up beautifully. It provides the perfect warmth for my hands as I’m drinking. Highly recommend.
I like it already and anticipate loving it by the time camping season is over here in Wisconsin. (I'm not at all fond of weather below 40 F.) I've got a couple more outings planned and will use the Lore again for morning and midday coffee. It "radiates" a feeling of warmth beyond a porcelain mug! (I'd just add that I'm a bit peculiar in that I always take a crystal glass camping for drinking other beverages because I will NOT drink out of plastic -- ever. Even backpacking requires a level of civility!)
Perfect for that much needed morning coffee in the Pacific NW. Thanks!
Love this Kuksa!!! No more burnt lips from my old stainless camp mug!! The styling of this Kuksa is beautiful. It fits great in the hand. There is nothing like watching the sun come up while sipping coffee out of it.....
Love my cup! My #1 go to while camping.
Economical, stout, and well made! I have a penchant for personalizing most things I purchase, and did so again. With a bit of sandpaper, mineral oil, bees wax, this Kuksa shines. Just the right size!
Use it for my nightly bowl of ice cream
nice unique style love it
Great cup, all my family members want one!!!
Awesome craftsmanship and a amazing addition to my gear!
Beautifully made and it feels like I’m on Gilligans Island.
Great purchase love this thing , use it for coffee , soup and hot chocolate on my journeys
Love my gear from überleben including the new kuksa! Just the right size for use while primitive camping.
It’s hanging from my gear line in the van! Love it! Excellent quality and feel. Easy to hang on my gear and go.
A steadfast friend, a soothing handshake. An object of satisfaction.
we thought it was very unique, it fit our love of the outdoors, and I have a cup of coffee and my wife has a cup of tea every morning at our camp in maine.
Nice cup - I like wood - A little heavy, was expecting something a bit more delicate - The grip is a bit slippery with the end against the cup edge a mite thick which causes my finger to slide away from the cup - not complaining - I may fine tune the grip to fit my hand with a Dremel - All in all. like the cup. Thanks.
I used it a few times already,,,, It works great with the Rod or Flint and Steel,,,, but I have a good supply of Charcloth,,, So I'll save in the pouch with the Rod for a "Git that fire goin NOW" event.
And I'll order a couple of extra wicks soon,,, just to have them on hand.
Im not in the wild yet, something i do, i test all my gear before i go! Any excuse for great coffee, you can drink it quick and get on your way ! Love this mug❣
Very comfy and stylish cup. I use it for drinking coffee in the morning and drinking bourbon at night. Highly recommended!
Got it for my son for Fathers Day. He said he likes the size and weight.
It's a gift so I haven't used it yet. But it is beautiful craftsmanship and it shipped quickly.
Charming new addition to my cupboard. Love the feel of this cup!
Beautiful to hold and drink out of, will cherish it, and buy more for special friends in my life :)
Bushcrafting or just in the backyard, this kuksa is a real treat to use. Coffee stays hot without the mug burning your hand and an afternoon adult beverage stays cold with no weeping. I got the "12" (and added my own "belt tag" to keep it handy around camp) and now my wife wants a #8 original. She'll get it!
- Jeff Glover, happy customer
Enjoy my kuksa very much!
Great portable cup, edge is thicker than expected, however drinkable.
Well made product that I am going to enjoy for some time. Well done
This is the perfect size for morning oats or afternoon soup or stew. Makes me feel like I’m home in the woods!
Use everything all the time. Extremely happy with all products. I own one of everything.
Great company, great products! Fast shipping great prices! Do yourself a favor and buy it if are going back and forth!
Love my kudos for coffee and an occasional bowl of oatmeal or cereal. It’s a keeper!
We aren’t coffee drinkers, but we love hot chocolate. These are great to look at and use. We love them!
Great addition for anyone, especially the ones who love the outdoors. Great quality and it’s exactly as described. Would definitely recommend
Setting by a warm fire in the stove drinking some mead in my wonderful cup
Beautiful product works perfectly I love it
My feel experience is awesome, cup is fantastic!,
Beautiful cup, but I dropped it on the rocks first time out. A pretty good chunk chipped off the lip, so I glued it back in place and did a little modification to help hide the repair.
It's my second kuksa and I use it at my mini bush camp in the back yard using an old coffee pot. My mini bush camp is the best I can do during the "lock down". I have a fire pit and am just waiting for the two top pieces for my stoker stove, so i can brew my coffee in my kessel. I absolutely love all of the products I have gotten from Uberleben, and will tell anyone that they should check you out first, before buying any camping/bushcraft products.
I received my Lore cup in a timely fashion, however there was a small crack (pretty sure it was a natural crack in the wood) that caused a slight leak. I reached out to Uberleben and showed them the issue, and they immediately shipped me a replacement. My new Lore is fantastic! I am enjoying it while in our ‘new normal’! I will definitely purchase from this company again!
Love this kuksa. Well made, durable, rustic and endearingly nostalgic. Lightweight and versatile, it’s the perfect weight to confidently bring along with you into the backcountry and the perfect size to sip on anything from camp soup to steaming oatmeal, and hot cocoa to cowboy coffee. It’s also super easy to clean up and take care of. Definitely recommend this.
I really enjoy the Lore Kuksa, the best part is no more burnt lips with hot beverages, but it looks and feels great in hand; my hiking buddy liked it so much I bought one as a surprise for his birthday. Despite the weight, this is a luxury item that has become a staple and must have in my hiking/backpacking gear. Thanks for a great product that meets and exceeds my expectations. Get one for yourself you'll be happy you did.
