Ash Kuksa - Revisted

Apologies for another Kuksa post, yesterday when i posted about the Ash Kuksa i made, i noted that i wasn't overly happy with the shape of the handle, so today i made a few alterations to the cup, i revised the handle shape to something I'm a lot happier with, I also made the bowl a litle deeper and steepened the sides inside the bowl and thereby reducing the wall thickness a little.

Since the photo was taken, I've also added a leather lanyard with an antler button and sliding hangman's knot so i can tighten the lanyard around the handle for carrying and hanging, but allowing the easy removal of the leather for cleaning the Kuksa if i need to.

  2. Spot on, beautiful. Nice, clean and sharp definition which is all too easy to lose when fine sanding.
