I'm looking for a drinking vessel made out of bamboo.  Something slightly different from the ones seen in Jackie Chan's Drunken Master 2.  A shorter drinking lip would be more desirable as well as a handle and shoulder strap made out of cord instead of the common leather I've seen.  I'd like it to hold approx. 1.5 - 2 quarts of liquid and still have a cap/lid that hangs by a piece of matching cord.  What I see as being difficult is that i'd like to keep its Diameter at around 3 inches.  The Length can be whatever it needs to be to hold the approx. amount of liquid.  I don't know what the 'chambers' of bamboo are called but I'd like it, if it was possible, to contain 2 such chambers.  I don't know what other information I could give that would describe the item.  The item is for my SCA persona.  I've included a video clip from the movie and the item is featured starting at 3 mins into the clip.  Thank You.

Could one get a still photo of it please. Also have you looked at what we currently have for Bamboo cups in the featured items?
I will attempt to get a still. Give me some time on that though.  Yes i've looked through the items currently in the featured items and although they are nice I'd like something even more unique.
dus is good then with a still picture or two and a few basic measurements I think Richard will be able to do this
3 still pics added to original post.
I have sent an email to the artisan of Bamboo Nation today. Hopefully I will have a response for you sometime next week. Thank you for your patience!

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
