Item details

A lucet is a tool used in cord making or braiding which is believed to date back to the Viking and Medieval periods, when it was used to create cords that were used on clothing, or to hang items from the belt. This lucet braiding tool is perfect for period reenactments.

Lucet cord is square, strong, and slightly springy. It closely resembles knitted I-cord or the cord produced on a knitting spool. Lucet cord is formed by a series of loop like knots, and therefore will not unravel if cut.

You have the option of having your name engraved on the handle. Please let us know what name you would like engraved in the 'note to seller' box available when checking out.

The inside width at the tip of the fork measures at approximately 2", the length of the fork is approximately 2.25". The overall length of the Lucet is 7.25" long by 2.5" wide. The thickness of the Lucet is approximately 1/2".


FAQs

Contact us for any special requests. Custom orders are welcome. Because of the nature of custom orders (time and materials invested that can not be recouped), no refunds are given for them. Some custom orders can take up to 6-weeks to complete.

All items are for adult use only. Please keep all items and packaging away from children. Copper, and to a lesser extent brass, can react with skin oils as well as water. Extended exposure to water and 24-hour long-term wearing of items made from these materials can cause skin to temporarily change color. Additionally, resulting chemical changes can break down the metal structure, leading to breakage of your items. As a result, please remove jewelry before going to bed, bathing, showering, etc. You can clean your jewelry to prolong its use and keep it looking new by using copper or brass cleaners 1-3 times per month, depending on your area's humidity. For sterling silver, use silver polish. Always keep your jewelry clean and dry.

I ordered this because I am a fiber artist and interested in all facets of fiber creation. I can't say that I have mastered it yet but it is easy on the hands and fun to use. Very well made.

Just lovely and finished off so smooth and nice. It is going to age beautifully.

I love the history behind this tool and after practicing techniques found in tutorials am becoming proficient. The lucet, while slightly more expensive than most, appealed to the artist in me with beautiful wood, smooth finish and pretty carving.

Beautifully made tool that I had to have even though I don't yet know how to use it. Sometimes you have to have something pretty to inspire you to learn a new technique. It's lovely and thanks!

Information on Viking knit items:
I make the chain using a technique called Viking knitting. It is based on analysis of chains found that were made by the Vikings, and is more of a weave. The result is similar in appearance to a knitted chain. After weaving the wire, I draw the chain through successively smaller holes in a drawplate until I achieve the size, flexibility and density I'm looking for based on the wire gauge used. The resulting chain is smooth to the touch and flexible to differing extents. The single knitted chains are made from a single piece of wire. The double knitted chains are sometimes woven from either 1 or 2 pieces of wire, depending on length.
