Kuksa

Kuksa is a type of mug made with traditional Nordic craftsmanship. Each one is carefully handcrafted with the hope of bringing happiness to its owner. It is said that those who receive a kuksa will be blessed with good fortune.

 

Made of half-processed maple wood

The most challenging part of making a kuksa, the hollowing out, has already been done. All you have to do is carve the handle into your desired shape using a carving knife! We have selected a set of carving knives that are useful for making kuksa. You can choose to leave the carving marks or sand them down for a smooth finish. Create your own one-of-a-kind kuksa!
