a cup for life
These Kuksa are made by Laplanders from Finland. The kuksa is a hand carved drinking cup made from birch burl. Laplanders have a personal Kuksa that stays with them throughout their lifetime and has been used by Laplanders for as long as anyone can remember. They use it for everything they drink: coffee, tea, vodka and water from the stream. The cup will not hold any flavors from previous drinks.
In other words: the most sustainable cup I ever came across!
Available in several shops throughout the planet (like kellamknives), but it might be even better to craft one yourself, with help from: Jon's Bushcraft
