The original Knuckle Duster MUG! / Brass Knuckle MUG!
For many of us, mornings are tough. Fight back with a strong cup of coffee in a mug that’s tough enough to carry you through the day.
The perfect gift for anyone who likes to think they deserve respect!

The idea for the knuckle duster mug was born way back in 2007. Towards the end of our product design degree we (Steven and James) were toying with the idea of producing our own range of cool products.
One day, whilst sipping lukewarm coffee from polystyrene cups in our decrepit Uni canteen, we were filling up a sketchbook with lots of our off-the-wall ideas inspired by the previous night’s entertainment of Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels.
The term ‘YOU MUG!’ resonated (a ye olde Cockney term for one who is a bit of a fool). From this the idea of an actual mug with a knuckle duster/brass knuckles for a handle was born.
After getting a prototype made, the now ingeniously named 'MUG!' (see what we did there?), our first tangible product was becoming a reality. Having no idea of how to get it to market, or even if people would buy it, we posted some not-so-great pictures of it (below) on our not-so-great website (at the time) and emailed it to a few friends.
Not long after putting it out there, the gadget gurus at GIZMODO found it and posted it on their blog... It went crazy and the Thabto inbox literally blew up from receiving emails from people far and wide asking where they could get one. Apparently people wanted to sip their brew from a ‘Proper MUG!’
The search was on to find a manufacturer, again having no idea of how to do this, we did what any self-respecting person without a clue would do – We asked Mr Google (he’s a wise man).
After a few months of figuring out firstly how to get these things made, then a few more months of actually waiting for them to be made, then a few more months of them being transported half way across the world on one of those big ferries, we eventually had our stock (delivered to our huge expansive warehouse – Steve’s garage!)
MUG! 2008 - We decided against the blood splatter print because people told us it was 'too gory’.
We could now get on with selling our garage full of MUG!’s. Through our website at first, then onto retailers and then onto distributors all over the world!
The following year we went on to produce the black & silver and white & gold variations of the MUG! which were even more successful, but to this day we still get emails from all over the world requesting the original blood splattered MUG!... SO HERE IT IS: The limited edition blood splattered MUG! for that killer coffee - Grab yours while stock last.
