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.

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.
Excellent product. Great fast delivery. Will order more stuff!
What a beautiful addition to my daypack. I’ll be drinking in style now
Love tHe cup! Can’t wait to bring it camping. Good quality and great customer service!
Has me excited for new outdoor adventures involving sipping coffee at the best views WV has to offer!
Bought a few different products over time, very pleased!!! Will be buying more!
No photos yet ,But perfect for our high country use.
I love my Lore Kuksa! The 12oz size feels comfortable in my hands and not too big. This kuksa made my cup of coffee even better.
Awesome I have the smaller version too. Excellent craftsmanship... what you'd expect for Uberleben.
A great, great kuksa! The larger size is ideal for those cold Minnesota snowshoe adventures.

Got a few of these for Christmas gifts. They loved them! Couldn’t be happier.
Love my new kuksa. Can’t wait to warm my hands and belly with a hot cup of coffee out in nature.
Great product. I use it camping and at home. Can't say enough about how this company is truly customer focused. Great experience!
Bought this as a gift for my brother who is into survival gear! He loved it!
Love the feel and look ! Great quality !
I don't have a photo yet - it was a gift to my son and he hasn't been out in the woods yet - had to go back to work. Trying to order more for his b-day so would like the 15% discount.
Amazing 12 oz cup! Reminds me of the kuksa my grandfather made me years ago. It's been on several winter adventure already always retaining the warmth of the hot beverage. Highly recommend.
Love it!!! Excellent quality!!
So excited to gift these cups to my Baby Yoda lovers
Very nice. Bought for gifts.
Wonderful design Kuksa. At first I was apprehensive about this design. But now I love it. The bigger size is nice too.
Got both....BOGO 1/2 off! Love waking up and drinking my coffee and eating oatmeal around last nights leftover campfire from these! Perfect for my canoe kit.
Great quality and finish!
I actually bought both kuksas because I really like the ready availability of ordering and they are such quality products. I was a personal chef for 13 years and now a coal miner for 6 by trade but when I get out of a long hard day and sit down with my family, there’s nothing like a hot glass of tea in my new kuksa. I love all of your products and am hoping to but the titanium stove next. I already have the steel and I love it for the cook outs and fires with the boys at our Boy Scout meetings. I’m patiently waiting for the kettle as well because I really want the whole matching set. Überleben is a great company and caught my attention quickly. Thank you!!!
It holds more and packs a little tighter due to the slim handle. It weighs almost nothing! I have 2 8oz kuksas (capacity). They are great!
Look forward to trying out the new one.
Bought 12oz and of course different style came out couple of days later. But I like it
If it wasn't for the new model releasing I would have given this 5 stars.
I love this cup because now I don't have to either carry my plastic cup, environmental disaster, or my burn your hands and lips metal cup. Granted each of the other cups have their pros and cons, but this cup is the best of all worlds.
No burnt hands and lips, unless you slosh or guzzle that boiling drink, and no more worrying about if, and this is a big if, I "lose" my plastic cup in the backcountry. Yes, i have had some varieties of squirrel decide they liked my cups or clothing or both more than me.
For treatment of the cup for longer storage, I use the nontoxic Howard Butcher Block oil. It has the needed oils in it, plus a beeswax and Brazilian carnauba wax. This will keep it looking new and prevent cracking. If your worried about the mineral oil and waxes, just put a little "hot" water in the cup and swirl it around and dump the liquid and wipe it out.
Now I am waiting for Christmas so I can reopen my present.
Arrived on time, as advertised.
A great Kuksa indeed. I love mine and am gonna be sipping some Christmas spirits out of it. Thanks Uberlebin! Get you one!
I love how it feels in my hands. The craftsmanship is amazing.
My wife and I travel in our Sprinter Van Rv and were looking for a natural wood cup when we camp. I had looked at Finland's birch kuksa cups but could not bring myself to paying $100 each . I found the Uberleben cups and when delivered I could not be happier with the purchase. Thanks for a fantastic product at 1/3 the cost. Ed
I did not get to try this as I gave it as a gift. The receiver stated that they loved it !
I’m very passionate about the outdoors and love good quality outdoor gear. I have several kuksa cups and bowls....they are fantastic! I take mine everywhere I go. My cups have seen many a wondrous sights in my woods and have also hand some great food and drinks. I highly recommend them. Enjoy!
Very light, comfortable in the hand and the craftsmanship is quite well done. Looking forward to the years of usage to come.
Love this cup for my bugout bag!!!
I bought four of these wooden cups, one for me and three for gifts, are not what I would consider finished out the box. The lip of the cups all needed a fine sanding as well as certain parts of the cup where the finish was less then I would expect. After a 15 to 20 minute sanding with 220 grit then 400 grit the cups looked great but not before.
The other thing I didn't like was the graphic "12" on the cup handle; I thought it was a bit silly so I sanded it off . . . but that just might be my taste for simplicity.
Other then that the wood was well selected and solid, the grain pattern was what it should be, and the shape of the cup was nice. I would recommend this product if you don't mind doing a little work on it.
Simply and nice
This is a gift for my husband. I know he will love it! The quality and workmanship is lovely!
Came promptly. Intended for Christmas gifts, so no in-use photos yet.
Haven't used it yet but immediately impressed with the sturdiness of product. Will use soon for trial before o embark on my next journey.
A very nice Cup, great material, very smooth and handy. I like it very much!
Sturdy and perfect for the tent life!
The perfect mug to serve up steaming hot mushroom chai latte!
GREAT addition to the Ueberleben collection of nature-inspired outdoor gear! A 12 oz is just the right size for a 12 oz can or bottle! Enjoy the comfort of drinking out of a wooden vessel! Skoel!
Nice cup, can't decide to keep it or give as gift.
Bought these as a gift for my husband’s bushcraft gear and he loves them! Thanks so much!
Very well made, I ordered them for xmas presents for my outdoor loving family.
Even when I am not camping or backpacking I have my 12 oz Uberleben cup with me at my desk to portion out my snack for the day!
Exceptional quality! Thanks!!
I have always loved wood product made by hand. I haven't used it yet, but it is up where everyone who comes to home can see it. Thanks again for making such GREAT HAND MADE WOOD PRODUCT.
Beautiful craftsmanship. Feels nice in your hand.
I love this kuksa. I missed my chance to buy it when it was first released so I was stoked when it was re-released and jumped to get one. Haven’t taken it out yet but I use it around my house for hot tea and ice cold water all the time.
I love it !!! Thank you for replacing the cracked one so quickly !!!
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!
linda cortes l.
both of the cups and the stove are so us we felt connection immediately- the craftmanship is beautiful and professional- we can feel the love and pride that has been put into your work
love and light

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.
