    Is that the one from Game?

    Here is mine minutes before I worked it with an angle grinder and flap disk.

    (I cannot help with the handle)

    Treat the existing handle like the tang of a knife.
    Two hard-wood shells, shaped to fit.
    Secure with epoxy and 2 or 3 brass pins.

    Damn good idea , anybody near Krugersdorp ? . Most other camping mugs etc I have covered in string but this might need thin rope?

    Is it easy to drill holes ? No facilities to make wood so planning sash cord , glue and 2 holes to start and end winding ?

    ... some of these kitchenware shops
    (like YuppieChef in Sandton) sell a
    slip-on insulating handle ...
    ...for cast iron pots, fry-pan handles etc
    Will probably solve your problem...

    Thanks guys, going with the sash cord as per pic. First end glued and clamped. Will dip the handle in varnish and hope....few days in the sun should harden it ?
