Every trendy fuck has one. I passed someone on a trail with two of them. Fucking two.

What is it? A tea cup?

A wooden cup?
Nobody has these.

Don’t lie op, do you sell these and you’re trying to bamboozle us?

It's a standard beginners whittling exercise. Try making one. The trick is to get the smooth finish with just the knife. It's called a kuksa
>>
>>1938293
It's to make you feel more elf.

I have a wooden knife, wooden mortar and pestle, and wooden spoon.

Would you like images? I generally only carry the wooden mortar and pestle though in case I get the urge to squish things a bunch. Like acorns. Then boil them and pour the water out then boil them again then pour the water out then etc literally rinse and repeat etc. Then eat it as flour. Bring baking powder and it can rise. WOuld you like acorn flour hardtack? Because I can make it anytime I want. All because of my wood mortar and pestle. Metal rusts and bends, ceramic is heavy and breaks, wood is something you can make yourself if you had to. How do you know they didn't whittle it then use a rock to smooth it? How op how?

You're not supposed to bring butter knives you bought for under a dollar on survival trips, anon.

Thats akuksa, my grandfather got one and I got one. These are not a new thing. I am Norwegian btw. I guess its just not been used for so long in murica.

Wooden knives get past metal detectors. Don't you want something YOU made from literally SCRATCH?
>>
>>1938293
Wood anything is pretty gross, catches all the bacteria in the porous surface
>>
>>1938616
No. Wooden knives are a meme and you know it yourself too. Ceramic gets past metal detectors too and is much and much more superior.
>>

This. I've had one in my bag forever.

>Every trendy fuck has one.
What the fuck is wrong with you burgers and your autistic screeching? That is not some trendy gimmick but a cup design that has been around for hundreds, maybe thousands, of years.
>>
>>1938669
It was heavily shilled on a discount site called MassDrop for a while and gained steam in the ultralight community. The issue is the type of burgers buying these. They will spend any amount of money to virtue signal that they are trendy and cultured while buying a cup from a spamming website. Titanium is much better for /out/ and the prices have come down so much over 5 years it’s amazing.

Probably. But nowhere near as comfy.

It's far more comfy anon.
>>
>>1938731
Nothing comfier than carrying a cup your grandad made, which has been soaked in coffee and strong spirits for decades.
>lighter
Go away
>>
>>1938427
Step up your game. The challenge is making multiples that have extremely similar dimensions when finished. These two spoons are an almost perfect set. Slightly overswelled the handle on the one with sap wood.
>>
>>1938634
Wood is antibacterial. Look it up.
>>
>>1938685
Basically, and we're probably one of the worst about it. Gotta lot of angry larping faggots in here seething at the people who have made it.

OK Mr. Diogenites of Sinope why don't you just cup your hands to drink, faggot.

Take your PrEP and stop complaining.

But it will snap in half easily.

I gutted a fish with a wooden knife once. You just have to make it a serrated wooden knife and then to finish it with a polish so as to avoid splinters.
>>
>>1938634
Cedar walking sticks exist. Go read about cedar.

Also, people put a finish on wooden objects for a reason.

That's the second thing you whittle after a spoon and they are traditionally made from birch burl. That's just basic handcraft skills like making a handle for a puukko or a backpack from bark or hafting an axe.

What happens if you want to follow a bee to the hive, steal the honey, then make mead if you have no yeast wood?

What if you make acorn flour, removing the tannins and all, add wild berry jam to it, then want to make the yeast rise the flour/jam into a bread/cake/biscuit/etc?

Where will you get your yeast? Just wait for it? For days to infect it hoping that nothing bad like a bear comes along?

Sounds like you hate breads and mead.

They don't snap easy at all. They are more brittle but if you pry with them like a retard they're fine. Way more useful than wood anyway you look. If you're going /out/ who cares about the metals detector anyway? Plenty of shit you can buy specifically for that.
